Tears fell on Alabama as the death count roared in,
a massive storm of destruction cause the death of many friends.
Words cannot express the horror as we watched with helpless eyes,
not knowing who would be remaining or who would not survive!
Could a mumbled prayer from a shelter, cause the wind to alter away?
Knowing a few feet left or right, would means a soul might blow away.
Did the cries of the pure in heart, allow God's mercy alarm to sound
from the streets of Tuscaloosa to Cullman and other towns?
As we watched in desperation, as our homes were turn to dust,
many remembered Jesus words “MY GOD MYGOD Have you forgotten us!
But the mercy drops kept falling, as neighbor to neighbor
and friend to friend.
With wounded hearts we speak as one “Alabama will live again”
Tears fell on Alabama as the enemy has prevailed.
The long night of terror will not mean eternal Hell!
Don't let sorrow overtake you and pull your spirit to the ground!
Use your prayers to a living God! You know he can still be found.
Let the hurt and pain leave you like the storms of the night.
Tears fell on Alabama, but thank God ! It will be alright!
Written especially to the families who suffered great loss in the April 27 nightmare
