Our thoughts and our prayers</br>
From a family who cares</br>
They are all with you tonight</br>
</br>
Our sisters and our brothers</br>
Fathers and mothers</br>
And the heroes who tried to save them all</br>
</br>
We want you to know</br>
You are not alone</br>
We are all standing by your side</br>
</br>
We all feel your pain</br>
We will hold your hand</br>
We will dry your eyes when the teardrops fall</br>
</br>
Tonight we’re praying for Blacksburg</br>
Lord we need a helping hand</br>
Put your arms around us</br>
Help us understand</br>
Tonight we’re praying for Blacksburg</br>
</br>
Police cars and sirens</br>
Are etched into my brain</br>
Three weeks away from graduation</br>
</br>
How could this happen</br>
In our home away from home</br>
It was always such a happy place</br>
</br>
The things that we saw</br>
The sounds that we heard</br>
We did not know what to do</br>
</br>
Then we heard the news</br>
Our worst fears had come true</br>
Then the tears started rolling down our face</br>
</br>
Tonight we’re praying for Blacksurg</br>
Lord we need a helping hand</br>
Put your arms around us</br>
Help us understand</br>
Tonight we’re praying for Blacksburg</br>
</br>
Lord lift us up</br>
Help us stand again</br>
Get us through all this grief and pain</br>
</br>
We will fly our flag</br>
The orange and maroon</br>
To let the world know we’re still here</br>
</br>
We need to smile again</br>
Together with our friends</br>
Talk about the good times we’ve had</br>
</br>
We will carry on</br>
We’re Hokies right or wrong</br>
And we’ll walk around this campus without fear</br>
</br>
Tonight we’re praying for Blacksburg</br>
Lord we need a helping hand</br>
Put your arms around us</br>
Help us understand</br>
Tonight we’re praying for Blacksburg</br>
</br>
Tonight we’re all praying for Blacksburg
