Disturbing Thoughts (I Just Can't Ignore)

"It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.”
~Mother Teresa

Father, we have sinned in word, and deed, and thought,
Through ignorance, through weakness, through deliberate fault.
We've sinned against our neighbor and against You, Lord,
Yet we are truly sorry, and we turn to You once more.

Father of the nations, You who bless the poor,
We're servants of the endless want and drive for more.
We've made our greed a virtue, while the children starve.
Come change our joy to sorrow, till our lives reflect Your heart.
