Strong, gentle children,
God made you beautiful,
gave you the wisdom and power you need;
speak in the stillness
all you are looking for;
live out your calling to love and to lead.
Strong, hurting children,
angry and terrified,
fear not the secrets your life has concealed;
though you are wounded,
know you are not to blame;
cry out your story till truth is revealed.
Strong, knowing children,
utter your cry aloud,
honor the wisdom God gave you at birth;
speak to your elders
till they have heard your voice;
sing out your vision of healing on earth.
