Tomorrow

So much death and so much sorrow

Strength from You I need to borrow

On my own can’t face the morrow

Beaten down my heart is grieving

 

Hate, rejection from all corners

Infiltrate, bombard the careworn

Instilling fear does God’s love scorn

Tongues continue their deceiving

 

Media sparks partisan slant

Talking heads shout fiery rants

Incites shunning immigrants

Creates worldly, skewed perceiving

 

One another we divide from

Caught up in the devil’s maelstrom

‘stead of praying for Spirit’s calm

Where grace and peace bring receiving

 

This fog lets us see not a trace

The brilliance of His watching face

But asking, we could be embraced

With His measure of reprieving

 

Today is not well with my soul

Tomorrow I may feel more whole

I know Jesus holds and consoles

I in Him keep on believing

 

“You shall not wrong a sojourner or oppress him, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt. You shall not mistreat any widow or fatherless child.” (Exodus 22:21-22)

 “When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.” (Leviticus 19:33-34)
