One Nation, One Tear

Updated on July 12, 2016

When we fail to see the light

Because the skies are grey

And the world that we once knew

Looks nothing like today


Do not despair and give up faith

But fight in Christ alone

For hope lies not in man or deed

But Christ upon His throne


We each must learn to stand as one

Before we all together fall

To live in love, and peace and then

To honor God above it all


We must not fall for snares put out

By those who wish to see us fail

But stand instead upon the rock

And over death we shall prevail


To pit a man against a man

Has been the trap for all of time

To rip at seams from deep within

Has sadly been the paradigm


But we must stop, it has to end

Before our lives, we let them shatter

From hatred stirred from forces high

We need to see that All Lives Matter


To love thy neighbor as thyself

From He who died to set the tone

Is the message we must share

But not in us, but He alone


So to this country I would say

Through tear stained eyes of all

In shades of black and white and blue

It's time to heed the call


To take the arm of all you see

Thy brother and your sisters hand

And turn it all back to the One

Who has the power to heal our land


For if we fail to take a stance

To stand for love, not fall for hate

We may just find we wake one morn'

And find that it's all gone...too late


So father, mother, daughter, sons

Of all the races, stand up tall

And bind together now in love

One Nation Under God, For All


Glory, Glory Haleluia

His Truth Is Marching On

      Thanks Laurinzo. Hopefully we will get to see that day. Sadly, there are too many out there that make their living out of stirring the pot and keeping us divided. It's time we stand up to them and say "enough".

      I pray that our nation learns to stand for what is right. The evil and madness is concerning and must not be allowed to continue. Your words are inspiring.

      Thank you both, teaches12345 and bravewarrior. The world, and indeed America, is certainly filled with troubling things of late. I pray for our country and this world daily.
