I pray my roots stay deep and strong,
Discern what’s true, what’s right or wrong.
So many claim to know the way.
So many paths that lead astray.
The winds of change are raging through
To redefine what’s good or true.
Destructive forces shouting loud,
“Come follow us and join the crowd.”
How complicated life has grown.
I fear we’re reaping what we’ve sown.
I long for simple days of old,
When hearts were warm, not hard and cold.
I pray once more we find a way,
To live, to love, to laugh, to play.
I pray God’s light will help us see.
I pray that darkness soon will flee.
