How Much Longer?
When will this most terrible time so end, dearest Lord,
How much longer must we each endure in this world?
Must we continue on this hard road of such an evilness,
Shall you soon stop it, as your flag of justice is unfurled?
We all are not guilty as some, those who have no care,
Should we endure these wrongs, punishment to share?
Will you please remember your children, those beloved,
As we all are subjected to atrocities, everyone must bear?
We try to follow your ways, the goodness of your own son,
No matter how hard we may try, until each day is so done.
The wickedness, those villainous abound, in great number,
As your children we are fearful, none of us rest in slumber.
Should we remember the Psalms, how you promised then,
Never us to be harmed as long as we believed, ever again.
The Lord's Prayer and Twenty-first Psalm, as good guides,
These will serve us well, then for every new day, to so begin.
We all do know this is so, for in scriptures written so plain,
If we have faith as small as that of mustard seeds, a grain.
We all shall follow your precepts, abide by a scriptural path,
Then let those who try to harm us, to feel your great wrath.
Allow us to feel your warmth on our shoulders, its embrace,
The reassurance of our loving Father, as we see your face.
Help us all in every way to be stronger and do our very best,
For in our hearts, of our souls, dear Lord, we are so blessed!
