THE LORD IN THIS WORLD

THE LORD IN THIS WORLD
You are the hope that can save man
from what occurs in this mad world.
A major power fights against
another country; both are strong.
 
They fight about a trivial thing
and kill a lot of men in war.
Where are you, conscience? Intervene
and make their rulers save these souls.
 
They can destroy the world with bombs,
with hunger and with gas and germs.
Is that what Jesus teaches them
to shun remorse by turning cheeks?
 
Where are we from this sublime Lord
Who asks the leaders to serve all?
He loves the people though they shout
to shed his blood in a cruel form.
