Where Do They Go
Lyrics
WHERE THEY DO GO?

intro Now I lay me down to sleep Pray the lord my soul to keep.If I die before I wake
Pray the lord my soul to take. Amen

Verse: Do you hear the silent cry of the unborn soul
from the mother's womb being torn
Little children snatched from their beds
they are afraid to lay down their heads

Chorus: Where do they go the innocent soul?
Their lives were cut short now
They will never grow old
The innocent soul where do they go?

Verse: Kids can't even go to the candy store
Another child caught in the crossfire
Broken hearted mothers cry how many more
Another stray bullet has changed so many lives

Chorus: Where do they go the innocent soul?
Their lives were cut short now
They will never grow old
The innocent soul where do they go?

Bridge: The angel with tears in his eyes
quickly takes away the innocent one
from earth to heaven he flies
into Jesus' arm he places the child,
Into Jesus' arm he places the child

Chorus: Where do they go the innocent soul?
Their lives were cut short now
They will never grow old
What about the babies?

Where do they go the innocent soul?
Their lives were cut short now
They will never grow old
Where do they go the innocent soul
The innocent soul where do they go?
Short Song Description:
This is a song of hope for those facing senseless death of a young child due to violence.
Story Behind the Song:
This song was written for a movie opportunity involving the death of innocent children. However, I did not want it to be a dark hopeless song and hopefully I achieved that goal of offering a sense of hope during hopeless times.
