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!
