In each child

In each child

I haven’t the strength to hold
For yet one moment more
An acrid haze of molten air
Shrouds the burning shore
Entire town engulfed in flame
This lake our sole flight
Praying for our Lord’s assist
To save us through this plight I offer you in fading stretch
This precious child of mine
Hold her safe above the waves
Reassure her all is fine
All that I have is lost to fire
I couldn’t lose her too
Please bear her a little while
Help her make it through
This town we called our home
Is now all but gone
But in each child we will find
The strength to carry on
