   sinéad:
in the name of
and by the power of
the holy spirit
may we invoke your
intersession for
the children of england
some of whom i have seen
murder so obscene
some of whom have been taken
let not another child be slain
let not another search be made in vain
jah forgive us for forgetting
and jah help us
we need more loving
you see the teachers are representing you so badly
that not many can see
let not another child be slain
let not another search be made in vain
jah cause the ones whose beliefs kill children to feel the love of you and be healed
and may we all cry too
for representing you
so badly so badly
jah forgive us for forgetting
oh jah help us
to be forgiving
the teachers are representing you
so badly
that not many can see
let not another search be made in vain
let not another child be slain
