o GOD help

o god help
60,000 and more have gone
be with those who remain
help us not turn away
help us look and give and cry

help us not turn from disaster and other's pain
help us turn to your miracles of grace
help us look and cry and live

help us turn to peace with chaos left behind
but in the chaos let us pray
and know your glory abounds.
help us look and see and love

o God help
it would be easy to look away
and call those in pain and loss--them or 'other'
but they are your children and your pain O God
must be great.
help us pray and act

o God help
we whine about so many little things
forgive us our sin and help us to forgive those who sin against us
we pray and we change and grow

o God help
us not to look away from families with lost children
in wave or in war. but to bear a bit of their pain.
help us share the burdens.

o God help.

God abide
Bobbie Giltz McGarey
