Plague

1. This plague won’t end
Until we give up selfishness
And strife.

2. This plague won’t end
Until we start to value
Every life.

3. This plague won’t end
Until we love our foes
And see their worth.

4. This plague won’t end
Until we tend and cherish
All the earth.

5. This plague won’t end
Until we grasp our folly
And our sin.

6. This plague won’t end
Until we seek the Lord our God –
Within.
