The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken
And saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
The news I heard today has left me broken
Prayer requests came in and then the tear drops
A storm named Katrina is headed toward New
And Biloxi; Prayer requests for God to Please,
The storm beats upon the shore,
Huge walls of water flood, winds of devastating
Tear through the heart and soul of cities; ages
Lives are lost, just how many; Heaven, Only,
Survivors with out power, or food, or water,
In winds and rain, they struggle, just trying to
On rooftops waiting to be rescued one by one,
Brave men keep on working until the job is done.
Through weeping hearts, too weak to find the
Our spirits pray for Your Mercifulness, Oh Lord.
We Praise You in All Things, Lord, which work
together for good.
Help us to find Your Blessing in the midst of
this devastating flood.
