The Migrant's Prayer 2015




May you never see children hungry
May you never hear parents dying
May you never hold out your hand
And plead for help from a turned back.

May you never have hope taken from you
May you never have dignity denied you
May you never hold out your hand
And plead for help from a turned back.

May there always be food on your table
May there always be blankets to warm you
May you never hold out your hand
And plead for help from a turned back.

May your children grow straight and strongly
May they live to be wise and kindly
May they never hold out their hands
And plead for help from a turned back

  1. Thank you Carol you say what many good decent people feel about all the rethoric and vilification of men, women and children who have suffered more than we can imagine.

  4. And please can someone make David Cameron spend just 24hrs in a refugee camp. Without anyone to shine his shoes or put the toothpaste on the brush for him.
