All the Wonders

We Have No Words

We Have No Words

We have no words To express the depths of our grief, Our sorrow, our outrage, our despair.


Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy.


For parents and grandparents, Aunts, uncles, siblings, and friends Who have lost someone They knew and loved.


Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy.


For first responders And all those who witness violence firsthand. For survivors and their loved ones.


Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy.


For all held captive by fear, And those imprisoned by wounds, Minds twisted by mental illness and rage.


Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy.


For the leaders of our country and our world, Who seem powerless to stop the violence That fills our news feeds, Our schools, churches, grocery stores ... The public places that used to feel safe.


Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy.


Holy One, we stand before you in grief, In sorrow, in outrage, in despair,

And we cry out ...


Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy.
