JESUS, TAKE A HOLD

.
.
.
.
Like the ancient Roman Empire this world is doomed to fall

And it’s much too big a thing for mortal man
Just take a look around and see the writing on the wall
Somehow we’ve got to find a helping hand

This world has never been in the awful shape it’s in
And people scorn the things our leaders do
It’s time a prayer was spoken from the heart of every man
Jesus take a hold and lead us through

The mighty roar of gunfire is now a local sound
And our city streets are filled with angry men
Law’s now a mockery throughout our troubled land
And destruction seems to be the current trend
.
.

This world has never been in the awful shape it’s in
And our leaders seem in doubt what to do
It’s time a prayer was spoken from the hearts of every man
Jesus take a hold and lead us through
Jesus take a hold and lead us through
.
