|Text:||O God, Our Words Cannot Express|
|Author:||Carolyn W. Gillette|
1. O God, our words cannot express
The pain we feel this day.
Enraged, uncertain, we confess
Our need to bow and pray.
2. We grieve for all who lost their lives…
And for each injured one.
We pray for children, husbands, wives
Whose grief has just begun.
3. O Lord, we’re called to offer prayer
For all our leaders, too.
May they, amid such great despair,
Be wise in all they do.
4. We trust your mercy and your grace;
In you we will not fear!
May peace and justice now embrace!
Be with your people here!
