Our Hearts Are Crying

Updated on January 29, 2017


As another child dies on foreign soil,

Amid the cries, and by all the toil.

Now patriots have to stand and say,

There's just got to be a better way.


Refrain:

Our hearts are all crying, Liberty's light is now dying,

Once so proud, America, We've got to keep on trying.



We can't ever deny a new citizenship,

Those who come by plane or if by ship.

America stands for great freedom's call,

liberty awaits them here for one and all.


Refrain:

Our hearts are all crying, Liberty's light is now dying,

Once so proud, America, we've got to keep on trying



In this grand land of the free,

So precious each child to be.

All deserve a chance to live,

Then a better life for us to give.


Refrain:

Our hearts are all crying, Liberty's light is now dying.

Once so proud, America, we've got to keep on trying.



Stand up patriots and all shout,

It's democracy we're talking about.

Our hearts are all so strong.

In this land, we belong, there's no doubt.


Refrain:

Our hearts may be crying, Liberty's light now dying,

We're all proud of America, we will keep on trying.

We have pride in America, we will keep on trying.

      "We'll keep on trying"--and praying! We each have to find what we can do and pray for the courage ans strength to do it. Thanks for issuing the call.
