A world so out of balance Literally out of its mind Rolling, tumbling on A very, very thin line Not even those lost rebellious angels Did you dare to die for Only over us Your Spirit’s healing You wished to pour To enable re-birth Through all the light & darkness of this universe’s Massive girth In truth, nothing and no one else Did you create to Reflect the goodness of Yourself but us Thank you, Dear Lord In You only may I completely live & trust!
