A Prayer for Calamities
Lord, we could do nothing but wait at what would come to us
We are nothing but dust, yet you made us your children
Our hands could not reach out, but only measure from one arm
Our feet could not run, but only walk a few steps, till the next turn.
We couldn’t hide Lord, but just stay where we are
When the earth shakes, the waters rise, and darkness visit our lands
We could only cry for your mercy and seek Your Face.
Where are you dearest God?
Please protect us and those we love
Please hold each falling leaf, and sweep with your breath
Every rattle of doom. Come to us Lord, and carry
The weak earth, every crippled nation, and mend
Those teeth all cracked from the mouth of life.
We are so afraid dearest Father,
Please forgive us our transgressions
And help us rest with you, forever Jesus
Please halt the chaos, and give us tranquillity
Be our strength now.
Most Sacred Heart, we trust in Thee
All angels and saints, hear our prayers.
Into your hands, Almighty God, we commend our lives.
