W:To-day we're strong and healthy, W:Tomorrow there comes the change, W:As we may see from the explosion W:That has been at Trimdon Grange. W: W:2 W:Men and boys set out that morning W:For to earn their daily bread, W:Never thinking that by the evening W:They'd be numbered with the dead. W:Let's think of Mrs Burnett W:Once had sons but now has none; W:In the Trimdon Grange disaster W:Joseph George and James are gone. W: W:3 W:February has left behind it W:What will never be forgot; W:Weeping women and helpless children W:May be found in many's the cot. W:They ask if father's left them W:And the mother she hangs her head, W:With a weeping widow's feelings W:She tells the child its father's dead. W: W:4 W:God protect the lonely widow W:And raise each drooping head. W:Be a father unto the orphans W:Do not let them cry for brea.d W:Death will pay us all a visit, W:They have only gone before. W:And we will meet the Trimdon victims W:Where explosions are no more.
