Poems

A Prayer for Jamaica

Written by Debbie Campbell

 Our Father

You are the Watchful Eye

Over this Land of Wood and Water

We ask of You

To help us to reverse the curse

To give our Leaders the courage

To guide this Nation to its Greatness

That’s already instilled in her People

 Help us! Dear Father

As we are One People Out of Many

To Rise UP and

Tread upon the Enemy

Of Selfishness, Greed and Murder

Change our mentality!

Give our Future Generation of Leaders

A New Vision

A New Insight

Of the path that we must take as a Nation

Let integrity rule our Leaders’ every decision

And like Moses

Lead Us as a People

Through the Red Sea

Of Turmoil, Disenchantment, Disillusionment

Suffering, Pain, Chaos, Bloodshed

That cover the Streets of our Paradise

 

Be our Light, Dear Father!

Through this time of darkness

We cry and We pray

For HOPE

For PEACE

For LOVE

For UNITY

And when we begin to see the Fruits of our Labour,

Together, as a Nation of grateful people,

We will not forget to say THANK YOU

 In His Name, Amen ©

 

 Eternal Father bless our land-GUARD us with Thy mighty hand-Keep us free from evil powers-Be our light thru countless hours-To our leaders-Great Defender-Grant true wisdom from above-Justice-Truth-be ours forever-JAMAICA LAND WE LOVE! Teach us true respect for all-Stir response to duty’s call-Strengthen us the weak to cherish-Give us VISION lest we perish-Knowledge send us Heavenly Father-Grant true wisdom from above-Justice-Truth-be ours forever-JAMAICA LAND WE LOVE!
