~Lord, Hear the Cry of Your People~
“Oh Lord, our hearts are heavy
As sorrows abound and sufferings grow
We long for a better country
Where the rivers of joy unceasingly flow.
Yet we live in a growing tension
In the now and not yet we endure
With a flesh that longs for comfort
And a Spirit that longs for more.
Oh Lord, your children cry in anguish
At the hands of evil men
Tears and blood cry injustice
And plead your righteous hand to defend.
We fight for hope in this weary world
As we travel the narrow path
Battling the war of sin within
And enduring the enemy’s wrath.
Oh Lord, these cries and tears
May they not fall on deaf ears
But shake the earths foundations
And remind us you are near.
Courage, dear heart
When chaos abounds
When evil taunts and flourishes
And injustice relentlessly resounds.
The battle has been won
His Lordship will be known
The days of evil are numbered
Because our King is on the throne.”
~With enduring hope,
