Help me Stand for You Alone – A social justice song

How dis war on poverty become war on the poor

Dear reader: Please pray that this song will reach many hearts. You have a voice. Let it be heard. Let us work together to bring people out of their poverty to realistic hope.

Lord, as I walk with You each day
Seeing darkness all around
Help me see the light of Your love
In every life You bring to me

Chorus:

Help me stand for You alone in the suffering that I see
Lives ground down and losing hope
Needing Your love in my heart to see

Millions, cold, hungry all alone
People dying on the winter streets
No place to lay their head
Shelters filled to capacity

Chorus:

Help me stand for You alone in the suffering that I see
Lives ground down and losing hope
Needing Your love in my heart to see

Problems are many, solutions few
Of this growing poverty
Lord, we need Your wisdom to see
Ideas to free people from their poverty

Chorus:

Help me stand for You alone in the suffering that I see
Lives ground down and losing hope
Needing Your love in my heart to see

People needing medications to get well
Denied coverage -given excuse upon excuse
When will they no longer hear no?
When will they be given back their dignity?

As I work for You each day
Let me stand for You alone
To fight for the oppressed
People strangled by their poverty

Chorus:

Help me stand for You alone in the suffering that I see
Lives ground down and losing hope
Needing Your love in my heart to see

Repeat chorus twice

About osborne2029

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. I m in an M.A.-Ph.D program with St. James the Elder Theological Seminary to train to become a psychotherapist and priest. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
