In a mother's womb.


Stand up and hear the cries

With anguish they cry,

With despair they suffer,

With hope they hold on,

Hear them cry.

In haven, she is broken,

In safety he is woken with pain,

In the womb they are torn,

Stand up and hear the cries.

They cry for rights,

They cry for freedom

They cry for justice

They cry for peace

They cry for a voice

They cry for love

They are the aborted,

I will stand up to hear the cries

I will…

Be the voice,

Bring the justice,

Bring the peace,

Be the lover they have cried for

I have stepped up and heard the cries.
