MOTHER, DON’T LET ME DIE!
I’m a child, only a child who lies here under rubble, dying,
This I did not ask for but my fate rests in God’s powerful hands.
I’m afraid fore I am in such pain, why, oh why must I die!
The Earth exploded with a thundering sound, all around.
Lord, as I lie here it is that I think of my mother, oh! mother,
Please take this from me, the fear and the pain, I’m coming!
Mother! don’t let me die, I need you tonight at my side,
Tears run down this little girl’s face, Mother don’t let me die!
If I must go then please in heaven make it so, let me go,
Mother! Mother! please don’t cry, mother, don’t let me die.
