Let not our American lives be in vain
All that we have conquered
Which makes our nation an undying flame
Lives were lost, and to the heavens they will go
They will illuminate the answers we need to know
God always has a reason for such things that come to be
This hurtful tragedy will only lift every soul
And one day set us free
'Cause when you lose something as precious as this
It will never be in vain
Each significant life is with God
And he will take away the pain
And as our people ponder about what truly is right
Just remember, the answer can be anywhere
And we will get through the fight
Yet, the most sincere solution can be found in every heart
And I guarantee it will lead us on a new path, a brand new start
In spite of all this darkness, there is just one light
The souls in Heaven who illuminate the moon
They tell us that there is hope, and it will come soon.
