Hellicane: Poets Respond to Hurricane Katrina

Sometimes things happen\r\nThat totally change our life\r\nBut the Lord is with us\r\nIn these times of strife\r\n\r\nHe feels our pain\r\nAs we grope to understand\r\nYesterday we thought as a child\r\nToday we must grow to be a man\r\n\r\nLife isn\'t always easy\r\nWe all have our trials to bare\r\nIt\'s hard to understand\r\nThings don\'t always seem fair\r\n\r\nHis grace and his love is with us\r\nJust open your eyes to see\r\nHe sent help from all walks of life\r\nHe opened the hearts of both you and me\r\n\r\nPeople have opened their homes\r\nKids giving all that they can\r\nHe is with us always\r\nCheck the footprints in the sand\r\n\r\nHe listens to our hearts\r\nAnd feels each and every tear\r\nOnly God has the power to heal us\r\nHis grace and love so much bigger than our fear\r\n\r\nSometimes bad things happen\r\nAnd we feel we\'ve lost our way\r\nIf we\'d all open our hearts to God\r\nWe would hear what He has to say
