There is More Than earth

Despite all the ugly things that they say

you are beautiful in the eyes of God

even if spite and division are celebrated by the entire world

the sky still proclaims a message of heaven

of a love that doesn’t need to be earned

of a peace that can calm the storm within

a lesson of grace that can be learned

a hope that can free us from hatred’s prison

isn’t this our secret longing

don’t we all want something more

than constant turmoil

in the lives we are living…
