For Toronto, for Canada

O Toronto! We mourn your city streets —
the broken lives, the silenced words, heartbeats.
With saddened hearts we send our prayers,
for those who grieve and those who fear
both far and near.
O Toronto, you stand for so much more —

bright welcome for the stranger at the door.

God hold with tenderness each empty place,
God tend the wounded, touch each weeping face.
