A Modern Day Kinnah

Over two thousand years since
You poured out Your wrath like wildfire on Your children
Burned our home that housed your light
You cast us away from our glorious land
Spurned in vexation man, woman and child
Suffering at the hands of the hateful enemy
From generation to generation
From this country to that
Your back to our supplications.
Nowhere were we safe
Death, devastation, destruction
Again and again
Till we screamed never again
A ray of hope. Our country reclaimed.
Our flag hung proud
Hope was sung
A land rebuilt
Children cherished
A bright future anticipated
not so fast, not so fast
An enemy grown from within
Cold blooded murder of promise and beauty
Watch out above
Watch out below
Attacked from the sky
Attacked from ground
Attacked on the road
Attacked in our cars
Attacked in our homes
Attacked in our sleep
Our people weep
Our people weep
The sirens wail
Our people wail
When will it stop
PLEASE make it stop
We yearn for peace
We yearn for truth
We yearn for You
Turn towards us, accept our embrace
Let us cry no more
Comfort us
Uplift us
Let our home be rebuilt
Let us bask in Your glory once again.
