The lethal hand of nature
Far more shocking than any bomb
February 7 2009
Mother Nature annihilates
The callous heart of cowards
Makes the tragedy far worse
Arsonists were to blame
For much of the devastation

Fires burning, victims fleeing
Death toll shocking, nation reeling

This tragedy has made us see
That nothing in this life is sure
We all can learn from these events
To cherish every moment we have

Black Saturday saw Victoria burn
People swept up in flames
Towns wiped off the face of the Earth
A devastating fatal blow
What could be done against this force
Human power useless in its wake
Let’s not forget Black Saturday
The courage and the pain

Marysville and Kinglake
Burned down to the ground
Almost 200 dead
Victims of the horror
Nation rallies together
100 million raised
Let’s pray that this carnage
Never happens again

Fires burning, victims fleeing
Death toll shocking, nation reeling

When we look upon our world
It all becomes very clear
We are not in control
We’re guided by a divine hand

Black Saturday saw Victoria burn
People swept up in flames
Towns wiped off the face of the Earth
A devastating fatal blow
What could be done against this force
Human power useless in its wake
Let’s not forget Black Saturday
The courage and the pain

Fires burning, victims fleeing
Death toll shocking, nation reeling

Why does God allow these things
An answer I cannot give
But I have faith in His love
I put my trust in Him

Black Saturday saw Victoria burn
People swept up in flames
Towns wiped off the face of the Earth
A devastating fatal blow
What could be done against this force
Human power useless in its wake
Let’s not forget Black Saturday
The courage and the pain
