I can do all things through Christ
He will strengthen me

The 60s came and they declared You dead.
For a time many might have believed it.
But events transpiring ever since
have only convinced me that You are —
and always will be —
that still small voice inside.

Peace and love have gone
Division has gone viral
So I turn to You

Comfort in the past
Stability seemed assured
The emphatic red
