Oh God I ask you, hear my prayer
I know You`re listening everywhere.
With reverence Lord I ask you why,
All of creation has to die?
This earth of ours, the sky so blue
All planned then moulded just by You.
Our Sun and Moon there in the sky
Are they scheduled too….to die?
Its hard for us to understand
Why all this beauty that You planned.
Will wilt and die, just like a flower,
Each waiting for that final hour.
And will there come a time one day
When all you made will go away
And turn to dust, with all life gone
Oh Lord please tell me, I am wrong.
These thoughts keep running through my head,
Why not perpetuate life instead.
And keep each precious living thing
Safe and warm beneath your wing?
Did God who gave His only Son
To save the souls of everyone.
First plan that all on earth and sky
Would never ever really die?
And all one day with Blessed Grace
Live on in peace in some far place.
Beyond this Earth, the Moon the Sun
That’s known to us as “Kingdom Come.”
