How Long, Dear Lord

How Long, Dear Lord ?

Wherever we go ,Dear Lord,what we hear

The vulgarity nearly tears our heart into.

And if it can so affect our whole being

Then,Oh Lord ,what it must do to you.


Those sweet little babes, innocent beings

Sent to us from God to spread such cheer.

Now we look around at unfamiliar faces,

What happened to the ones we held dear?


Did we give too much, did we ask too little?

Did we teach them of Jesus and His Way,

Or, did we think just because we loved them

Those sweet ,little babes would never stray?


We think of parents all around the world

Who now grieve for the sins of their child.

Satan got in and then innocence went

And now they mourn for the one gone wild.


How long ,Oh Lord, will blood and tears

Stain the world you so wonderfully made ?

How long ,oh Lord,will the world suffer

Until Satan and all his evil powers fade?


Oh Lord, give your children the strength

To hang onto You in faith and prayer.

Assure us just now that wherever You are

That someday we'll be with You there !

At times when the young ones take the wrong

path we do not know why they have chosen

this way to go. they have had good parents

and a good upbringing but for some reason

they have chosen to follow the devil. Perhaps

it is their friends or for some other unknown

reason known only to them.We do not stop

loving them but try our best to turn them the

right way. At times all we can do is pray for

them and leave them in God's Hands He

has had more experience than we have but

never stop loving them and telling them so

and that they are in are in your prayers!

Hello Michelle,I am glad that you like my poems,I have 186 on here now, that is a lot of reading.I really find it hard to believe sometimes that they seem to be going over pretty good.I have written for years never thinking that other people would be interested in them.I guess this is the time that God wants them to go out to people now,I hope they do what they are meant to do. Thank you ,Clara
