I sit across from a playground,
I visit it today with a small child
I know such places where children play.
But sadly there's none of them here today

Empty playgrounds all around,
Playful children not to be found
Heal me of this broken heart,
Lord give me brand new start,
And help me to do my part for them.

Angels I pray will protect them,
Carry them home as You let them
Run freely with joy, secure and safe.
With no memory of this hurting place.

Empty playgrounds all around,
Playful children not to be found
Heal me of this broken heart,
Lord give me brand new start,
And help me to do my part for them.

And every time I see an empty playground
Your's will be full of children who have a home
In Your Presence, Lord, and near Your throne.
Radiant faces unashamed and whole again,
I feel now I am one with them because of mercy.

Father, You gave us your only Son,
He shed His blood for everyone.
Forgive us, oh Lord these sins today
And for those of the past, wipe them away.

Empty playgrounds all around,
Playful children not to be found
Heal them of their broken hearts,
Give them each a brand new start,
And help us to do our part for them.

And every time I see an empty playground
Your's will be full of children who have a home
In Your Presence, Lord, and near Your throne.
Radiant faces unashamed and whole again,
I feel now I am one with them because of mercy.

And every time I see an empty playground
Your's will be full of children who have a home
In Your Presence, Lord, and near Your throne.
Radiant faces unashamed and whole again,
I feel now I am one with them because of Your mercy.

I sit across from a playground.
