May The World Keep Turning

Morning has broken, daylight has come
Another day greeted by horror that stuns.
Where are we going, why must this be
Why can't we just live peacefully?

Weapons of destruction, that's all I hear
Anxiety grows, hearts fill with fear.
Our beautiful world was created for joy
Instead of protecting, some plan to destroy.

This wonderful planet that orbits the sun
Hosting God's children, some lives just begun.
There's no place to go, there is no escape
What kind of future can we possibly shape.

We need to connect, heart to heart
And offer a prayer for war not to start.
The prayer may be simple, nothing profound
May the world keep turning round and around.
