Lament for Afghanistan

With kind permission from Sounds of Wonder Music, we are sharing this lament, “Who Will Cry Out?”, written in response to the current situation in Afghanistan.

“We wanted to share with you a video we have made of a song of lament we have written this week in response to the tragic scenes unfolding in Afghanistan. Rarely have we felt so compelled to do something urgently in response to watching the news.

Just after writing the lyrics for this song on Wednesday I (Nigel) was so moved by what I was hearing on the ITV News that I had to pause the programme to write down what was being said. It was as if the song had been written in response to this specific news report, in advance of seeing it!

We pray the video will help you take time to lament and cry out with prayers of intercession for the people of Afghanistan.”
