Joy in Lord

O Lord the humble won’t inherit earth
Unless for their humbleness they fight
Fighting fighting fighting fighting
O lord protect our meekness
O Lord protect
Fighting

ii.

Slaughtering the innocent
Washing the blood off their hands
And working for the universal brotherhood
O lord teach me to persist in my folly
To become wise
Kneel and chant
Prayer stronger than a lion
Vilest terror and sorrow vanish
As we pray
Praise the lord to the end!
Pray well, humble heart!
Our solid flesh melts and melts
Fie on the nuclear war! O, fie!
This is Satan in disguise

iii.

From the golden bough of your soul
Sing and adore Him
O Lord, gather us into the ecstasy
O, may we live like sages
Rooted in love of Jesus
This flame of love
This clearest insight
Through century after century Jesus is
Our single defence against the prowling wolf
