When Wilt Thou Save the People?

When wilt thou save the people?
Oh God of mercy when?

 

Flowers of thy heart
O God are they
Let them not pass like weeds away

 


Not kings and lords but nations,
Not thrones and crowns
But men

 

God save the people,
Shall crime bring crime forever
Strength aiding still the strong

 

Is it thy will, O Father
That men shall toil
For wrong?

 

Oh, no, say thy mountains
No, say thy skies

Man’s clouded sun shall brightly rise
And songs be heard instead of sighs
God save the people!

Oh, God save the people
For thine they are
Thy children as thy angels fair
Save the people
From despair
God save the people!

Oh God of mercy when?
The people, Lord! The people!
Not thrones and crowns
But men

Oh, God save the people
For thine they are
Thy children as thy angels fair
Save the people
From despair
God save the people!

 


God save the people!

 

God save us!
For thine they are
Thy children as thy angels fair
Save the people
From despair
God save the people!

Pray without ceasing.

 

(Music from Godspell)

Mark 9:29  And he said to them, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer.”

And pass the ammunition.
