Invoking God’s Help


God, break the bonds of evil men;
Annul their corrupt ties;
How long can common man suffer?
Should he, until he dies?

God, punish men who harm others
And steal and cheat the poor;
The beggars sleeping by road-side
Get killed and maimed each hour!

God, protect those who work for peace
And bring to end the wars;
The leaders who make blunders must
Be put behind the bars!

God, make the earth a better place
For men to live with joy;
No nation must threaten the next
Or subjugate by ploy!

God, reward men who labor hard
For righteousness in life;
Their honesty must give success
Despite their growing strife!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
