Insulting and hateful, unhealthy debate,
We’ll not solve our problems with rage and with hate.
I pray that the fighting and hatred can cease,
That we come to the table in wisdom and peace.
Riots and looting, destruction and fire,
Complete desolation is that our desire?
I pray that the wrongs in our land be made right,
Through love and compassion may we see the light.
Can we find a solution with hate in our heart?
It’s time for a change to give love a new start.
I pray that forgiveness replaces the wrath,
That revenge won’t consume us, we’ll find a new path.
The fighting and hatred that splits and divides
Is born in the darkness we harbor inside.
I pray that the darkness inside us will flee,
That God grants us grace, that his love sets us free.
