Darkness falls upon our Country
Like a never-ending blight.
We are struggling to hold on to
Remnants of God’s blessed light.
We are children in a forest
Who have lost our way back
To the place of love and comfort.
It is trust that we lack.
We must up-root what is evil
From our lives and our hearts,
And not give in to hatred
That will tear us apart.
We must speak when justice wavers;
Remove hatred from our souls;
Dare to love those who are different;
And make acceptance our goal.
It is only when God’s values
Match the actions that we do,
That we’ll find a way to heal
The damage done to me and you.
Let us rise to meet the challenge
Before us as we turn
Toward the light and send the message:
Love is something we can learn.
Gather up your acts of courage,
Say the words we need to hear:
Faith and hope will get us through this
And restore what we hold dear.
