Treasure Island

Gert Strydom

(03 April 1964 / Johannesburg, South Africa)

Just once more I want to stand on my knees in front of You


Just once more I want to stand on my knees in front of You
and take all of the problems of my country to You
and maybe this suppression is necessary, Lord,
maybe now my people will now convert themselves
but Lord, some of my people die a cruel death
and many are jobless and in great need.

Lord, You do appoint leaders and governments,
You do determine the lifecycle of every human being
and of everything
and I beg that Your salvation will come
before I die in my years of old age.
My Lord, think of me, my nation and my country
and keep us continually in Your omnipotent hand.

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
