There’s a lot in life, that I don’t understand!
And a lot of wickedness throughout this land!
A lot of heartache and misery, is what I’m seeing!
Any kind of commitment, seems to be disappearing!
Being faithful to anything, seems to be of the past.
My lives seem to be falling apart… And fast!
Any principles of Godly living, seem to be ignored.
So many appear to be,
“complacent and bored.”
I often wonder what God must be thinking.
When it seems like this whole world is “sinking!”
I’ve decided to come to Jesus! And really pray!
That people will really listen to what God has to say!
“What shall the righteous do,
if the foundations are destroyed?”
Very soon, many of our “freedoms,”
will not be enjoyed!
Please, dear Jesus, come and heal our broken nation!
Help us all to confess our sins!
And accept your salvation!
Please come and bring your peace and love within!
That we may seek the living God! Once again!
God is our only hope! It’s in him, that we’re strong!
It’s in his arms of mercy, that we all belong!
Please God… Come and touch us with your healing!
It’s only in you, that we have a true meaning!
