Children of Rwanda

Revd Francois Murenzi

Known and unknown are the children of Rwanda
Victims of war and genocide,
Though not with us now we know you’re at peace,
We who survived will remember you.
Ten years onward our hearts still troubled
By lack of justice for survivors,
Help our leaders, bringing peace and hope,
Also preventing the same tragedies.
Will you join me now, remember lives lost,
Will you join me now, pleading to all,
To learn the lessons, that at any cost,
Genocide must end, forever more
