Lord, If ever our nation needs prayer
It is today
Television screams the news
Look what the papers have to say
America is in turmoil
We don't know what to do
We hear Praise be to Obama
But Lord, I praise only you
Lay Your hand on our nation, Lord
Take away our fears
We need a great healing, Lord
Would you dry America's tears...

There's children being abused
There's malice in the air
Murderers line death row
Does anybody care
Our soldiers are being killed
Our homeless live in the street
There's someone out there somewhere
Who has nothing at all to eat
Lay Your hand on our nation, Lord
Take away our fears
We need a great healing, Lord
Would you dry America's tears...

Our flag still waves proud
We are the land of the free
But at what price is our freedom
If our nations don't agree
Lord, we need your healing touch
Cover us with your grace
If all eyes would be on YOU
Everything would fall into place
Lay Your hand on our nation, Lord
Take away our fears
We need a great healing, Lord
Would you dry America's tears...

So much hatred in this world
Lord, we need you now
I want to make a difference
If you'll only show me how
Teach us to love one another, Lord
To put down our guns and knives
Dear Lord, I know your wish for us
Is to live much better lives.
Lay Your hand on our nation, Lord
Take away our fears
We need a great healing, Lord
Would you dry America's tears


Our nation is in turmoil
We don't know what to do
We hear Praise be to Obama
But Lord, I praise only you
Lay Your hand on our nation, Lord
Take away our fears
We need a great healing, Lord
Would you dry America's tears...

To have tears - you need to have eyes. Eyes that see. Eyes that will do.
Eyes that motivate one to stop all the hate. Eyes that will do something before it's too late.

Great poem Linda

Linda, I believe that you have written a beautiful poem calling attention to a multitude of ills our country is facing. I'm not a believer and don't consider praying as a solution, but if it brings about more awareness of the problems and causes people to vote for the people who can invoke the desired outcome, I'm all for it.

Well done. Thank you, Dick
