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!

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
