A group of third and fourth grade students at Currey Ingram Academy in Brentwood, Tenn. wrote a song for survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing. The song is called "Keep Movin' On."

"My mom ran the Boston Marathon," says Sasha Mason, a fourth-grader who co-wrote the song, in the video. "And even though she finished before the bombs went off, it was still very scary."

The school posted the song to YouTube, writing this: "This is a song of encouragement for survivors, written by Currey Ingram Academy students Megan Hamilton (4th grade), Maddie Hogan (3rd grade), and Sasha Mason (4th grade), with help from teachers and songwriters RC Richmond, Dita Rose, and Eric Vinson. The song and video were produced in the Currey Ingram Academy recording studio by teacher and songwriter Sean Kelly."

The school is encouraging listeners to share the song and donate.

"We want to make as much money for The One Fund of Boston as possible!" it says on the school's website.

Here is the song's chorus:

Wipe your tears away, it'll be okay

Keep moving on

This is not the end, the sun will rise again

Keep moving on.

Read all the lyrics.

What do you think of the song?
