Hymn of the New Holy Innocents.
This hymn is to remember all the little children killed before birth through abortion and embryo exploitation. Our Lord has told us to spread this hymn everywhere so that others will come to know and join in its chorus. It is a hymn of celebration praising Christ for his Victory in the children’s martyrdom and to honour the children themselves as saints who ‘follow the Lamb wher ‘er He goes’. It could be sung in churches, at prolife gatherings, prayer meetings, processions etc. ‘From the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.’
There’s a mighty white robed army
Interceding from above,
A host of little children,
Praising God for all his love.

It was Jesus that he sought
New innocents are slaughtered
Through Christ’s blood they are bought.

But He’s come and set them free
To proclaim to all the nations
God loves you and He loves me.

And we all can enter in.
<![if !supportLists]>6. <![endif]>The children have a mission
In a world of sin and shame
To call to all the sinners
“Come and sing our refrain.”
