the 'Gloves come off'

He calmly did lay down her head
limp and lifeless was her neck
and as he did a fire did flare through his heart
how many of these children
had he covered their face in these last days

too many for tears anymore
death had become a numbness
that pulled upon his soul
and prayer, prayer seemed to be a dog left in the street
the chill of wet pavement soaking in the rain

these hurt and wounded little ones
are they a vengeance for the millions of silent screams
or has hope become a vapor in the mist
he remembered inmates in prison
who would never answer wrong

Even the convicted would respond in voice and eyes
Even they wished mercy and goodness upon the young
then grief stressed his heart to physical pain
Asking, How do I respond
It's time the 'Gloves came off'

Yes, the 'Gloves come off'
laying anointed hands on the bleeding
to the dying give life and a night of peace
to walk down the streets they said, "don't go there."
Speak the Name Jesus to ones for who no one cared
