We Live In a Dangerous World

 This world that we live in
 is filled with many a danger
 every day nothing is certain
 no one knows whether friend or stranger

 Any illness can attack us
 many a trouble can bear us down
 humanity has no certainty
 indeed no lasting crown

 Since the world's beginning
 throughout every generation
 from east to west
 filling each and every nation

 Troubles and suffering fills mankind
 despite mans efforts of escape
 man is lost in this world
 a world lacking moral shape

 But this is our world
 filled with danger all around
 enjoy it while you can
 before it all goes to ground

 One day this world will end
 it's dangers will be gone
 a new world will replace it
 then eternity will dawn
