THE TEN COMMANDMENTS

I heard a mother's haunting cry

Why did my child, my baby, have to die

I dropped her off at school today

And everything seemed to be okay

I didn't get to say good bye

And no one even knows the reason why
 

(CHORUS)
When will we wake up and turn around

The blood of our children cries out from the ground

Lord, when did our children start to fall?

The day we took the commandments off the wall.
 

(Verse 2)
I hear the news, there's no place to hide

Another murder, then a suicide

Where did the conscience of our nation go?

When did our morals ever sink so low?

When did our children start to fall?

The day we took the commandments off the wall.
 
 

I am the Lord your God

Teach your children these words that I give

Teach them that they might live:
 

You shall have no other gods before me

You shall make to Me no graven image

Do not take My name in vain

Remember the Sabbath, Keep it holy

Honor your father and mother

Thou shalt not kill

Thou shalt not commit adultery

Thou shalt not steal

Thou shalt not lie

Thou shall not covet anything
 

For I am the Lord your God
Teach your children these words that I give

Teach them that they might live.
