We Will Survive

A country as rich as ours,
must stand guard as we pray.
For there are those who would love,
to take that freedom away.
God must always be in our midst,
each and every day,
in each and every way.

Suppression sometimes stands in the way.
Depression slows down the coming of a new day.
Oppression will never be our saving grace.
So we must concentrate on God’s precious race.

Living with fear is near,
for we know not what to expect.
God is truth and grace,
for he will take care of the human race.
If we keep Him first in our lives,
we are certain to survive.

This poem touched my soul, thank you for sharing this Ann.....
A lovely poem. I believe our loved ones are permitted to be with us and watch over us sometimes. My own father lived to be 86 but my mother only made it to 44. Thank you for sharing this poem with us.
