Prison's no place for an innocent child
There's no room for the meek, no room for the mild.
The nights are so lonely I toss in my bed
The days are so dreary I face them with dread.
Grant me one prayer as you did from the cross
For that thief who knew that his life was a loss.
Please come to this prison where I sit alone
Surrounded by razor wire, guard towers, and stone.
Broken and penitent, forgotten and lost
on the ash heap of regret where my life was tossed.
I've no other place left on this earth
Remember me O' Lord! Renew me by birth.
Come to this prison, enter my cell
Save me, forgive me, in this man-made hell.
And if in this life, no home here I see
In your Kingdom of Forgiveness, Lord, please
