Another typical Wednesday night, as we are hear to learn about the Almighty
Our hearts and arms are always open to others, as there is a stranger here on this night
Reaching others with the word, we are doing our job for God as we should
But on this night before everything ends, our lives, for them we would have to fight.

The young stranger amongst us, I must say he seems to be alright
But all of a sudden we hear sounds, sounding like firecrackers or fire works
Oh my gosh, the quiet stranger, a gun in his hands, taking several lives here, this very night
A house of God, a strange place for murder to show it's ugly face and to lurk.

Yea, though we walk through the shadow of death, we will fear no evil
Keeping strong as evil exists right before our eyes
In the end nine of us would die by gunshot, why us did you want to kill?
Our families would grieve and have a thousand whys.

Killed in a house of God, in this day and time is there no place safe?
We gave our lives, the only thing regretful are our families, their feelings
But now from all evil, there will be no more, as we reside in the arms of angels, here we shall always be safe
Now we can sing with the choir on high, no more pain or hurt, can fate to us bring.

We look down on the perpetrator and within our hearts we find the strength to forgive
That is what Christ would have done, forgiving but not necessarily forgetting
We the victims, fight hate, racism, have no meaning now as we are no longer alive
The angels now sing with us as our fears, they try to caress and to us peace they try and bring

What we feel now is just total love, in a place we know now we will be alright
The love and peace of this place, here we will be for eternity
The angels and the Almighty, within their domain, we will always be within their sight.
Don't cry for us we are now in a better place, from here we never wish to flee.
