While Japan Drowns

Magnitudes of numbers
seismic scales
people's wails

Silent brooding thunder
of earth moving under

and still it moves
like a fire breathing monster
underneath the oceans floor
stealing peace, wanting more

O Holy Rock You do not move
You hold us still
We pray for our brothers and sisters

in the land called Japan
but it is your land, your beloved ones
are calling to you now.

I can hear them, silent shock
why me? why now? why?

Redeemer, keep your promise
Never to leave us.

Keep your promise
never to forsake those
who trust in You.
