Twenty Angels
Twenty Angels

Twenty angels now in Gods arms
Arrived before their time
Their families are left distraught
Victims of such a crime
God must have really wanted them
To be there by his side
For his sons Birthday celebrations
The day that they all died

Twenty angels now in Heaven
Arriving for the big day
Just eleven days before Christmas
For baby Jesus Birthday
They left in such a hurry
They never said goodbye
They never knew it was their time
That they were about to die

Twenty angels Gone to Heaven
Missed so much by dads and mams
Why did they have to be taken
So violently by guns
We pray they didn’t suffer
They didn’t understand
Why they had to go so swiftly
Up to the promised land

Twenty angels are now happy
No longer now in pain
Away from guns and bullets
The day they were all slain
They didn’t get a chance to live
The lives their parents planned
Their young lives were so cruelly cut
By guns that should be banned

Twenty mums and dads devastated
By the loss of the ones they love
Taken so cruelly from them
To Heaven up above
They said goodbye that morning
As they left them at the gates
By the time they heard that they were gone
It was already too late.

Their twenty angels were in Heaven
Before they even knew
That they had said their last goodbye
On angels wings they flew
No chance for a last cuddle
No hope of a last kiss
No more school runs, no laughs no fun
No more Christmas wish

Twenty angels and their teachers
We hope they rest in peace
And may the guns that killed them
Be banned and forever cease
To cause such pain and heartache
To the family and loved ones
The short time they spent here on earth
Their beloved daughters and sons.
