A Month of Poems : A Better World

A Better World
God, look down on our cold hearts
And warm them with your love
And grant us forgiveness,
Which we’re so unworthy of.
Help us to do better
In this day that we’re beginning
And give us strength to overcome
Our selfishness and sinning.
Give us strength and courage
To be honorable and true
And to place our trust implicitly
In unseen things and You.
And keep us kind and humble
And fill our hearts with love,
Which in this selfish, greedy world
Man has so little of.
