By Mike Dasbach .To the tune of “How Great Thou Art”Dear Lord on High, I see the need and hunger That fill this land; on every face displayed I feel the pain, I see the fear and anger A people lost, their hopes and dreams betrayed Then cries my soul, My Saviour God to Thee How can this be, how can this be! Then cries my soul, if now all men are free How can this be, how can this be? I see the greed, I see the rape and plunder That rend our land, from sea to shining sea While good men stand, in hopeless contemplation And mothers fall to mourn on bended knee Then cries my soul, My Saviour God to Thee How can this be, how can this be! Then cries my soul, if now all men are free How can this be, how can this be? I smell the rain, I hear the roll of thunder Beneath my feet, my womb of blood-red earth This blessed land, You’ve filled with such abundance So wracked with pain, sweet country of my birth And then I cry, Dear God how can this be! Where shall it end, can we not see! Till comes the day, there’s no more you and me We’ll not be free, we’ll not be free! Give us the will, to cast our past asunder And cease to blame our skin, our history That hand in hand, we build a new tomorrow Where in this land, our children may live free So sings my soul, My Saviour God to thee Please let it be, please let it be Pray make us whole, at peace in unity Please let it be, please let it be… Lyrics copyright 2014 © Paul Christie – See more at: http://www.sapeople.com/2014/04/15/prayer-south-africa/#sthash.D7AUrkh9.dpuf.
