God is with us in all this hardship


when chaos storms Capitols
or your fragile heart and mind
the God of order restores
the law of love remains

when fatigue bends your body
or your ambition, motivation
the God of rest renews
restoration is coming

when heartache breaks you down
and you are crushed, crying
the God of comfort holds
feeling grief is holy

when fear is the fire that burns you
and you are anxious, restless
the God of courage guides
calm is ready to drink in

when lies invade civility
or conspiracies destroy decency
the God of Truth illumines
reason causes conversions

when hate seems to be winning
or evil has made all things ugly
the God of love consoles
beauty bursts through cracks

when chaos storms Capitols
or your fragile heart and mind
the God of order restores
the law of love remains
