Come, O Creator

Depravity now has its day,
The festering city
Erupts to spew abuse,
First on its children,
And then on those
Who come to its aid.

Perversity mocks virtue,
Opening its robes,
To welcome strangers.

No family,

No home,

No love.

Let Sin not reign,
Call out again.
Seek true liberty.

Spurn license,
And licentiousness.

Love yourn enemy
Within and without.
All men have sinned,
All suffer,
Abused and abuser.

Come, O Creator of Man.
Come holy plan.
Fight the battle
With heavenly hosts.
Build on these ruins,
A nation that is pure and just.
