The Father Above - Poem by Jackie - Joe Jackson

When
Have we sat down
and talk to God
God our Father
Father of whom I'd rather
Rather lay my troubles to
To him be the Glory
Glorious things he hath done
Did you stop last night
Today
And Say
Thank you for letting me live
To see Another Day
For the food that we eat
The breath that we take
The steps that we make
The hands we use
Sorry for the people we abuse
Help us to stop lying
Stop stealing
Start Loving
And walk the right way
So that on that Day
When the sky clears
We will all say Yes
It's time to go home
