(Prayer-Psalm. A solemn plea for mercy and(c) Walterrean Salley
guidance in the aftermath of September 11.)
Darkness like we’ve never known
Has befallen our nation.
Terror strikes by day,
Fear stalks by night and sadness looms.
But in the darkness, there is a light.
God, our refuge in these troubled times,
Through uncertainty—ever shine.
Oh, may your mercy never cease
To guide us in the way of peace.
