A CHILD'S FEAR OF WAR
I pray to lord Jesus in heaven|
As I kneel by the side of my bed,
For all the little children I pray
I pray for peace dear lord
Before too much blood is shed.
For I am only a little child lord
I am only seven years old,
I pray for all the children like me
Who might never live to be bold.
I love my mum and dad lord
And I know they love me too,
Please don't let there be a war
Its peace that I want don't you.
I know there are a lot of bad people
And they should be punished, rightly so,
But not the whole wide world lord
That would make everybody sad and full of woe.
I'm sorry I have started crying, I'm usually quite tough
I'll sure miss all my mates and my football and stuff,
I've got a great bedroom and I'll miss all the fun
Especially my computer and my football shirt I won.
I pray to you lord Jesus in heaven
I pray for all children like me,
I pray for all the world to be peaceful
And live in harmony.
Just like you teach us lord Jesus
If I grow up I want to be like you,
Happy and peaceful and gentle
We'll teach the world a thing or two.
Please watch over my family
And our soppy old dog Ben,
Who send you all their love
And say thank you lord, amen.
