And God saw that it was good
this alone is now the root
of all that is and that will be
for we are all God’s family
regardless of the way we pray
regardless even of what we say
God’s goodness will forever be.
It reaches out to you and me.
Though many times to my regret
I far too often will forget
that what the Bible has revealed:
The world will certainly be healed
from violence and war and strife
chaos will end, love’ll revive
humanity and all creation.
Just wait and be in preparation!
One day the swords to plowshares’ll turn
God’s promise now will always spur
all of us on in trust and hope
and that enables us to cope
with the pains of today’s crime
for tomorrow starts another time.
