Holocaust Memorial Day

It is awful to think

That we can be so cruel

The slaughter of the innocent

The death camps

The deadly duel


The Lord knew from the very start

How cruel we can be

And warned against all violence

Solves nothing don’t you see


How then to engage the world

How to solve the pain

Let the blessings of the Lord

Bless you once again


Blessed are the poor in spirit…

Blessed are the gentle…

Blessed are those who mourn…

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst…

Blessed are the merciful…

Blessed are the pure in heart…

Blessed are the peacemakers…

Blessed are those who are persecuted…


Live these words

And live by them

And bring the world to light
