New Younger Brother

Brother from another mother
Says the living in us
I say welcome to my family
I've missed you

We can catch up on stories of old
Stories of new
Your people take the world seriously
Mine just take it

I must apologize the atrocities
Of the race of humanity
As we all suffer ultimately
No matter the age we live

Brother far away distance knows
Not the heart we bare or the cross
So join knowledge as hands
And come across borders unknown

To gather with The Lord today
Teaching unfortunates what we
Presume as truth from our hearts
Convinced as truth from Him

Gladly I say he's my brother
I look to his guidance
As he looks to mine
God bless us all
