Lyrics

Cry For Justice

Written By: Nannette & JC Stephenson

A crime in a small town
Everybody feels the pain
There is a need for vengeance
so the sun can rise again

My last remembrance is of a child's embrace
I can still see her smiling, glowing face
I hope she's dancing up there with the angels
And her spirit looks down on us all

There's a cry for justice in this southern town
When a crime's committed, someone needs to be found
A life can't be taken
Without hell to pay
There needs to be vengeance today

Tears fall so freely on my pillow
I hope that this deed will be avenged
Cause it's a sad sad state that this world is in
And everybody, everybody should account for their sin

A Cry For Love

Written By: Nannette Garrett,JC Stephenson,William Garrett,Terri Dellinger

A storm in the Delta
Everybody feels the pain
There's a need for compassion
So the sun can rise again

Their last remembrance is of a love's embrace
They can still see their smiling, glowing face
I hope they're dancing up there with the angels
And their spirit looks down on us all

There's a cry for love for these southern towns
When hearts are breaking, everybody needs to be found
Lives have been taken and families torn away
There's a need for compassion today

Tears fall so freely on my pillow
Well, I know that help is on it's way
Cause it's a sad, sad state that this world is in
And everybody, everybody should try and lend a hand

There's a cry for love for these southern towns
When hearts are breaking, everybody needs to be found
Lives have been taken and families torn away
There's a need for compassion today
There's a cry for love for these southern towns
When hearts are breaking, everybody knows the sound
Lives have been taken and families torn away
There's a need for compassion today
There's a need for compassion today

(written for Hurricane Katrina survivors with 1,200 elementary school students singing on the chorus)
