i ask you lord to help me

please show me the way

shine light in the darkened corners

keep the shadows at bay .

men devastate in your name lord

killing and maiming is rife

we seem to have forgotten the message

god is the giver of life .

our political leaders send soldiers

to put their lives on the line

to enforce a political doctrine

as it has been since the beginning of time.

religious leaders spit hate dear lord

destroying the seekers of truth

promising martyrdom for murder lord

they infect the minds of our youth .

children die of starvation lord

corrupt goverments allow them to die

but one day the dictators will face you lord

i know you'll ask them why.

you've looked into my heart dear lord

you know my faith to be true

i will believe in you forever lord

only one favour i ask of you.

lonely people lose hope dear lord

so i beg you to give them a chance

to experience true love my lord

to believe in the power of romance.

amen
