Sutherland Springs Church Shooting

Broken pieces of our lives scattered all around
On the tiles beneath this roof a cry of death does sound
Gathered here to worship God and to our God we went
A mad man entered here today: allowed his sin to vent

No one knew this day would see a river flowing red
From the place where people prayed and shared communal bread
But it happened all too quick without a warning clear
Someone with a mind of hate brought eternity to us here.

Some are gone, and some have stayed: to carry on the faith
But, we mustnt wonder, in God's eyes: what will be his fate
Gunning down so many souls who gathered there to  pray
Foolishness has its reward ..and darkness has its day

To the families affected there:  drenched by sorrows deep
Know our God will rescue you:  from tears you shed and weep
He's our Hope; our Constant now:  He's the One we praise
Trust Him with your brokenness and He will heal your days
