A CALL TO AMERICAN UNITY (In Memory of 9-ll)

God Love Her

Tragedy can come to all of us

As we this earth daily do trod;

Tragic galvanizing moments unite us

They bring us much closer to God.

 

Life can change in the blink of an eye

Our firm faith is formed in the fire;

‘We bond more together in the heat

Holding on through the muck and mire.

The Lord gives and the Lord takes away

This Job patiently learned—

Yet in all of this Job fainted not—

Though his possessions were all burned.

God is still God in the darkest of times

We must all Unite our endeavors—

Life can change in the wink of an eye

But the eternal Love of God lasts forever.

 

So let’s renew our compassion for others

Let’s renew our fight for what’s right;

We still are the United States of America

—Let’s renew our great need to Unite.
