He Stands At The Gate - Poem by Lagaya Evans

Let's take the time
Let's look all around
Tragedy befalls us
In our little town

Oh my,
How can it be
This can't happen
Can't happen to me

The enemy comes
To kill and destroy
For our little girl
For our little boy

We hear people say
Take prayer out of school
We can handle it
We're no fool

Let the fool say
There is no God
Lock him out of the school
Don't pray to your God

Metal detectors
Guards and such
That's your answer
For a spiritual touch

Invite Him back in
He stands and He waits
To watch over our children
He stands at the gate
