Terror and tragedy
That seemingly can’t be prevented
By men of youth who apparently are
Completely, totally demented.
How can we curb the evil thoughts
That deliver them to perdition?
How can we give them other dreams
Worthy of fruition?
What selfish needs of theirs demand
The lives of so many others;
Why do they have no feeling
For their fellow human brothers?
Alas, evil walks with us,
And warriors are needed today
To spread the gospel and love of Christ
That can keep pure evil at bay.
There is so little time for us to act
As the horrors of life keep increasing—
If we wish to turn around our world
We must pray and work without ceasing.
