“Do Not Look Away”

Do not look away
And do not sway
To evil influence
Or false pretense.

We’re dreaming our dreams
And can’t hear the screams,
The suffering still cry,
Their tears who’ll dry?

The eyes that look away
Say what lips won’t say:
Some are too greedy to share
And some too busy to care.

Oh, it’s easy to see
We’re all too busy,
Just too busy to love,
Give of what we have.

We wake up and we see the world,
It seems things are cold and whirled,
Things are not as they could be,
Things could be better, you see.

We’re all prone to doubt,
To wandering further out,
We are falling faster still,
We’re running farther still.

Do not look away,
Avoid the evil way,
Stand your ground,
Hear truth’s sound.

Trying to fill empty hearts
And put back together parts
Broken by words and deeds;
Oh, this is where it all leads.

Honestly, oh, honestly, it’s a sad life
If it consists of emptiness and strife.
Fight it now and rise above,
Life is not life without love!

Who wants things to be this way?
Who doesn’t want it to go away –
All the strife and the wars and the pain?
We must do what we can, it’s not in vain!

Don’t go that way,
Do not look away,
Stop and turn around,
Follow the true sound.
…………
Glory to God Alone.
