A Praise to London
To all of London’s folks who travel each
day on their famous “under ground”
Yes praise you our London Town as we ride our
carriages in safety, ease and comfort each lovely day
Oh yes on our daily tasks it might be to school to
our work, or maybe, to some place just to play.
Certainly to us you are something very special as
you weave close to the river, the sea, or by the bay.
Yes. when at the end of a busy week you will take
us to our places of rest and worship where we can pray.
Yes when some unkind folks wanted to hurt our London
Town more then ever now we know what we need to do.
We'll stand shoulder to shoulder with conviction and courage
to heal our mighty land to protect her each day through.
Yes to our mighty London Town we will never give in to the few
who think they can hurt us, to TRY. to make us feel sad and blue.
Our prayers and thoughts of love are with us as we stand against
our foes,. Oh London Town, to you we will always be very true.
