If I Were God For One Day
Most people probably never even given any thought to this idea
What if you could listen to every prayer and thought?
What if you could feel what others feel?
What if there were something you could do?
Would you do something to help--would you?
What if somehow there was a way?
Ask yourself, what if I were God for one day?
What would you do?
Would you take the burdens off of your people
and put them on you?
Would you provide love to every plant, animal, man, woman, boy, and girl?
Would you provide peace to this cruel and evil world?
Would you be forgiving, merciful, trustworthy, patient, loving, and kind?
Would you provide answers to all the questions in your children's minds?
In order to save the world, would you sacrifice
Your only begotten son to die,
just to save everyone else's life?
How would you react to the people who killed Him?
Would you forgive and continue loving them?
Now think to yourself...
If there were any kind of way
What would you do if you were God for one day?
