The long search ended!
Half hidden in a thicket grave
His wasted little body lay,—
The end to all the mother's hopes and fears and prayers,
Wondering, watching, waiting
A few short miles away!

We still the end must wait!
A people made repentant for their sins,
A people moved at last to dedicate
Their strength and will to end this reign of crime,
This trafficking in human life for gain!

O God,
If any God there be,
This Baby's life,
This Mother's pain,
Let not this double price be paid in vain!
