 Reflections of My Heart

†††  Heal This World  ღ KKD ღ

Heal This World

My Heavenly Father
I come to You tonight on bended knee
My heart is heavy with the burden
of what I daily see

This has always been
the land of plenty
Yet it seems so many pockets
are now totally empty

So much pain
So much sorrow
So many astray
Will we have tomorrow

But what worries me
more than all of this
is the anger I sense
between Brother and Sis

It seems we have become a world
of it's my way or the highway
There is no compromise
How did we all so badly stray

It seems this world
has badly regressed
Back to a place
of fear and oppressed

Where did it all go
so terribly wrong
how did we let our weakness
gain power over our strong

What happened to the values
of Family, County and You
Where did we lose it all
What can we now do

To stand and not salute our flag
words of You are all but banned
What happened to taking
our sister's and brother's hand

I pray tonight it's not too late
to reach across sea and land
to join brother to brother
hand in hand in a united stand

Is it too late... Have we gone too far
Is it possible for each boy and girl
to again live in peace and love as one
I ask You to please heal this world

In Your Precious Name I Pray
