In Tragedy's Wake

author: Nell Berry    9/15/04

Hearts are breaking, lives torn apart,

everything is shaken, tempers are short.

This heinous act of immeasurabe grief,

committed by those, who hate our beliefs.

We can only guess, we can only surmise,

what horrific consequences, in the future lies.

The terrible injustice, the devastating toll,

how can a human being exact such a blow?

To bring such destruction on their fellowmen, is unthinkable,

unreasonable and cowardly of them.

Why can't we disagree without inflicting such pain;

 just love our brother, though we are not the same?

In a world torn with hate and so much division,

we may one day blow ourselves into oblivion.

We need to take stock of the situation,

what are we doing to stop this abomination?

We need to put God back in His place,

 as Creator, Redeemer,and seek His face.

God our Savior, knows what to do,

to Him we must turn,He's faithful and true.

In His Word, He says to love our fellowman.

To love one another is the greatest command.

If you and I can put aside our differences,

our Heavenly Father promises forgiveness.

All things work together for good, if we love the Lord,

He will guide us and help us, He says in His Word.

Lord help us, we humbly pray, bless this land.

We ask you to keep us safe by your loving hand
