To all those who make unjust use of the weapons of this world, I make this appeal: lay down these instruments of death! Arm yourselves instead with righteousness, with love and mercy, the authentic guarantors of peace. - Pope Francis

Lyrics

On a day in Christmastide
Twenty little spirits fly
Far from hurt and fear and sorrow
As their terrified kindred cry and they
Run and they wait at the gate
For a lifetime of tomorrows.

They were martyrs to the law
Where love of arms is put before
Little ones in our protection
Now their precious spirits soar
With a thousand that have gone on before
As the sun sets on our nation

And now our movement is stirred
And our resolved undeterred
And now our hearts will be heard
Never again, I say never again
Are you with me tonight?
Never again, I say never again
Are you with me tonight?

Still their voices cry out to
Every person that they knew
Mothers, fathers, strangers, friends
Let not my death be in vain
Shout out never, say never again
My love for you never ends

And now our movement is stirred
And our resolved undeterred
And now our hearts will be heard
Never again, I say never again
Are you with me tonight?
Never again, I say never again
Are you with me tonight?
Don’t give up…
Never say never again.
