Faith may devastate
But in disparity or grief
Dear Lord,
My faith in you never loses ground.
And you are
My never-ceasing source of solace.

Excruciated by need and greed
We embroil ourselves in disputes.
Goodness faces ordeals every moment.

O Lord!
On bended knees
I beseech you,
Only you can bring back peace.
If none cries in paradise,
Why do we on earth 
Where all your lovely creations
Strive to survive?
