Haiti's Hope

Updated on January 23, 2010

 

Prayers fly like the eagle

In the face of devastation

Praise resounds through a nation

On street corners surrounded by death

 

Tears are shed for the fallen

Laughter rings out for the living

Strength to face desolation

Joy for days that will come

 

The spirit of overcoming

Strong throughout the pain

Lives in the hearts of the people

Fighting for another day

 

Hope rises every morning

With wonder in their eyes

That breath still keeps them going

In the horrors that abound

 

A cry from under the rubble

Digging till the ground is red

Hope won’t be forsaken

For survival will always endure

 

Haiti will rise from the ashes

To shine in honor and grace

Trust she places in the Savior

That He will provide for their needs
