The world's a darker place today
For men with guns have staged a play
Where kids with hopes and lifetime dreams
Have been mown down with bullet streams.

The world's a sadder place today
With broken hearts in disarray
And mournful parents full of tears
With nothing left but painful years.

The world's a broken place today
For who won't turn to God and say,
"Why did You let this happen here?
Why is our world so full of fear?"

The world's a silent place today
And heaven knows not what to say,
For even God is hurt inside
And grieves the loss of those who died.
