All the World
All the world is filled with grief.
There is no place to find relief —
Except at the foot of Jesus’ cross.
All the world is filled with hatred.
Hardened hearts to sin have catered —
But some souls sacrifice themselves.
All the world is filled with violence,
With killing, thievery, fighting, riots —
Except when people learn to forgive.
All the world is filled with madness,
Insanity twists sense to rashness —
But reason can find a better way.
All the world must turn around
Until a better truth be found —
And hearts and minds are finally sound.
