Water rising everywhere
Making islands of despair
Rooftops turning into piers
Afloat now in a sea of tears...
Daybreak bringing no relief
Only growing pain and grief...
Helplessly, I watch from afar
As distant as a falling star
Unable to extend a rope
To those now drowning without hope
Of course I pray on bended knee
To ease the rampant misery
That threatens to encompass all
And causes even strong to fall
I pray that God will give us eyes
To see the Devil's sharp disguise
For evil comes not from above
Our God is good, our God is love...
Tonight, before we rest our heads
Let's pray for those without their beds
Or clothes or toys or food to eat
Or even shoes upon their feet...
A prayer said with careful word
I promise you, I know is heard...
There's power we can all impart
With simple prayers from the heart...
