A Prayer F​or Hope

Margaret sits by the hill
Stares at her children
Wonders what they'll do
When she's gone
Will hope also go
Heaven only knows,
A Song for Margaret
A Prayer for Hope

Asante Asante Sana
Under the hot African sun
Out on the Savannah
We don't know what to say to her
Don't know so we'll pray with her
A Song for Margaret
A Prayer for Hope

Mercy Mercy we need more like you
Mercy your light shines in the dark corners
Mercy more just like you with your light shining through
A song for Margaret
A Prayer for Hope

Mercy more just like you
And there's nothing we couldn't do
A song for Margaret
A Prayer for Hope

Don't lose the child
Amongst the children
Don't lose the soul amongst the living
Sure as Margaret will be forgiven
Francis will hope be living
A song for Margaret
A Prayer for Hope

Asante Asante Sana
Holy ghost Josanna
A song for Margaret
A Prayer for Hope
