The Powers that Be

Hear my prayer,

On heavens high,

I exalt you and swear

That you are much greater than I.


Oh, Divine Lord

Who rules over the Earth,

My faith is restored

For you gave me new birth.


In this vast world of wonders,

There is one thing I ask.

Forgive me my blunders,

For I am up to your task.


I know I am flawed;

I trespass and sin,

But by you I am awed,

As I never had been.


I will spread your word proudly,

With no fear of the sword.

I shall speak of you loudly,

And you shall be adored.


There are those who say

That old religion is fraught,

For them I will pray

That their lives not be for naught.


So bless me, O Great One;

Let me see what you see,

And educate everyone

On the powers that be.
