Amongst the midst of gun fire,
I lift mine prayers to Elohim who is higher.
Tempers flare, self control lost,
Feelings blaze at all cost.
Battling spirits war,
Hearts failing, flesh weakly sore.
Sending a tower of smoke, an incense,
Praying all wicked flees, reinforcing a tottered fence.
One stepped in the middle of it all,
Made peace and reproved with an enforcers call.
All became still, no more rage to be seen,
Wickedness covered by stern law and love made all clean.
Stand up from my face flat on the ground,
I look and hear, all is quiet and sound.
I start to dance as pressing grapes in praise,
Then a faint voice crying out says:
I’m not okay,
Again to mine face, I start to pray.
Yahuah, we need you this day in every hour,
Fill us with your holy righteous power.
Guide us, to be guiding,
In all of our gifts and suffering.
When we are weak, you are strong,
Make straight our path where we went wrong.
Break the oppressions, set the captives free,
Mine Lamentations to you I plea.
We can’t do this alone, calling you always,
Go before us, mine hand lifts to praise.
Here we are Yahuah, do your will,
Destroy all wickedness and those that steal and kill.
We won’t grow weary, though we get tired,
You give us rest from all that transpired.
They come at us fast, even overwhelming,
Yet, our voices won’t stop singing.
Flags lift up, flags thrown down,
Wars continue rising where peace desires to be found.
