Lullaby (God With Us)

Here’s a song I wrote.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33

A lullaby to a crying world
to help it sleep at night
was sent in form of a tiny babe
to pierce the dark with light

God with us

A lullaby to a war-torn world
to help it think of peace
a man upending the status quo
prayed for his enemies

A lullaby to a dying world
to birth eternal life
entered oppression, sorrow, and death
to vanquish all our strife

A lullaby to a hopeless world
Where guns and injustice reign
you showed us how to cheat death’s sting
by rising again

God with us in the cancer
with us in the fear
with us in our doubting
with us in the clear
God with us in the minefields
with us in the hate
with us in the shootings
God’s love does not discriminate

You’re always with us
