The church is dark and empty
She bows her head and begins to pray
Father, she prays aloud and with fury
Why did my child have to die she begins to say
Why oh why did my child have to die today?
I loved him, I cherished him, he was my baby you see
Why did he have to die, Father, please tell me!
Father I hear nothing from you on this issue today
I need to know that you are listening as I pray
Give me an answer to this one request
Give me an answer and I will do my best
To serve you and love you with all of my might
Father this is one thing I need to know
Why was my child taken out of my sight?
Why was he taken on Christmas day
Why did he die I ask you why, I pray
The day turns into night for me this year.
My child took a piece of me with him I fear
I hear my Father then whisper in my ear
He died because I needed him here
Heaven is a place for perfect happiness he says
There is no pain or dying there
Only perfect peace and this I wear
Trust in me in all things and know this well
He is safe in my arms and this is where he will dwell
