Let the light shine strong on all this hate
shine true and bright before it’s too late.
Help the world make that change even if it’s small
stay true and strong until it helps us all.
Let the light shine so strong that obliterates anger
and helps us work for a social structure that supports good behaviour.
Help us teach our children to be humble and polite
and be a living example to them, so it becomes their way of life.
Let us care for the strays
as we’ve occupied their homes with our buildings
and parks and gardens and roads.
Let the light shine true inside our hearts
help us change our ways and lead us down the right path.
A prayer for the days when hope is all we have.
