A Stand

I am not FEAR-less
Please hear this...

God's town
...time IS counting down

Love more
Fight less...This is His test

Live by the Word and not by the sword
Our country is in trouble, pray in that regard

Let's come together no matter the cost
Pray for those that remain lost

Pass this message on...
Let satan continue to say "that battle is won,I'm gone"

Look around what is that you see
Can we let this continue to be

The news filled with violence 
People remain silent

Our babies growing up in poverty and pain
HOPELESSNESS is where our mind and hearts remain

The ederly suffering because thier family left them alone
Millions of people that have no home

Hunger arising, health is too
PRAYER is what we need to do

I want to end by saying let's make a stand
Offer prayer and a helping hand

The Word simply states "love thy neighbor..."
Because who's looking down?..., is OUR Lord and Savior
