THANK YOU, LORD

New Orleans and many others in

That hard hit southern state.

Disrupted, twisted, torn asunder,

What will be her final fate?

.

.

Homes near ruined, standing water,

Other homes destroyed!  Complete!

Nothing left but scattered rubble.

Weeping men concede defeat!

.

.

Crowded into high-domed stadium,

Hard to get along, I think.

Shortened rations getting scant!

Boiling water, cooled to drink!

.

.

You know something?  Stop complaining!

Nothing here to gripe about!

Water is pure!  There is food aplenty!

Churches open!  We do without!

.

.

September 19th, we had lightning!

Thunder roared, shook up our homes.

Just enough to ponder,

Without God, helpless and alone!

.

.

Thank Him!  Praise Him!  For protection!

Thank Him for His loving care!

Pilgrims offered thanks to heaven

With no deep freeze to get bare!

.

.

Yes, things were tough but they found favor

With their God who brought them here

To this land of faith and freedom,

Where they worshiped without fear!

.
