A Nation Bleeds

A nation bleeds 

Her people groan

Heads bowed

Knees aground


Her cries for help are not in vain

But she despairs too easily 

Forgetting the victories of years gone by


If it was not the Lord who has been on her side?

She would have been desolate, and empty

Begging for the crumbs of foreign nations


Would she hope again

In the valley of the shadow of death?

Would she remain strong and resolute in the face of Goliath?


The reign of darkness and terror

Is coming to an end,

Light is coming,

Behold, joy comes with it!
