When the word falls apart
When violence threatens all life
Our fear filled hearts pause and remember
The truth of who we are, in Christ
Give us courage to lay down our lives
O' Lord, be our strength this very night.
Jesus, may we trust in Your presence
Fear of death reminds us who You are
You are our life's very essence
Our strength in the fiercest battle
Keeping safe our eternal souls
As You prepare us for the journey home.
