May God be with you on your way
And may he too throughout your day
Be ever present at your side
Should ever the need arise

Oh holy Mary mother of him
How can you watch us suffering?
Let millions of people so cruelly die
If you are who you are reply

And I'd gladly give up my role
That of a worthless soul
Hopelessly searching for something I believe
Doesn't really exist
If it does then why is it
Whenever the world prays for peace
Wars increase

When I was little my mother would say
Dear God will help you if you pray
But where was he when my mother died
How I prayed she'd remain alive

Oh I read how he came down to earth
And all the wonders that he worked
But that was then, now all I can say
If only he'd come today

Oh I'd gladly give up my role
That of a worthless soul
Hopelessly searching for something I believe
Doesn't really exist
If it does then why is it
Whenever the world prays for peace
Wars increase
