This day to me is just so real
I can’t explain quite how I feel
My heart so full I think t’will break
There was so very much at stake.
Ten thousand lost upon that shore
Who t’were not seen forevermore
My heart cries out, I cannot bear
The deprivation we did share.
How many dreams were lost that day
How many hopes were snatched away
Oh God above, please hear this plea
Vouchsafe this day of infamy !
