Lessons In Love - 2010

If only we could learn from Jesus' lessons in love.

          Another year has now ended,
          A brand new one is now at hand;
          Will it bring us peace and goodwill,
          Or will we still hate our fellow man?

          My wish for a Happy New Year,
          Falls on deaf ears while we're at war;
          I think of our troops still overseas,
          My Lord, what's all this fighting for?

          I know it's all about freedom,
          Yet, the price is so very high;
          We need to find a better way,
          There's no need for any to die.

          Lord, I ask that You hear my prayer,
          Help us find peace in this brand new year;
          Do I ask too much of You, Lord,
          That no child should ever face fear?

          It's said, "History repeats itself,"
          I find this saying is all too true;
          War after war, for hundreds of years,
          We've forgotten the teachings from You.

          If people can't learn to get along,
          Protect the children from up above;
          Place loving arms around them, Dear Lord,
          Teach us again, Your lessons of love.
