Waken us to Satisfaction

We’re not lyin’ God, we’re cryin’. Take a look and you will see.

Give an ear and you will hear our prayers from lips free of deceit.

—–

Make a start, come try our hearts, there’s no wickedness to see..

Even in the words we utter you’ll find no profanity.

—–

Save all people who seek refuge from what’s evil in their land.

Wicked adversaries threaten. Keep us safe at your right hand. 

—–

Guard and guide us, stay beside us, navigate us through the threat

from the ones who would despoil us, who prefer to see us dead.

—–

Rise, O Lord, and overthrow them. Do so in your righteousness.

Waken us to satisfaction, steadfast love and happiness.
