My Nation Needs a Saviour

My Nation Needs a Savior

Quest of a common man…

I want to change this NATION; I want Justice to prevail,
But in my heart I’m selfish, and in my soul I’m stale.
I want to change the system; I want to confront all wrongs
But when I look inside me, I see an animal worst then all.

I live a life of honor; my heart is full of pride.
What’s worth of my neighbors! They are insects in my sight.
I say to myself in my heart, I’m god of my own.
What’s significance of poor! They are dust of my thongs.

I discriminate by caste; I discriminate by position,
I value rich, and treat with contempt broken.
I declare women to be goddess; still rape her on the road,
I exploit every bit of her, to gratify thirst of my throat.

Lust is prince of my mind, love I have buried aside,
I live with a heart of stone, I have no feelings alive.
I profess to be so religious; I worship thousand gods,
Yet when it comes to bribing; I accept it with great applause.

I see the riches of this world, but I don’t see troubles of poor.
I hear bells of temple, but I don’t hear cries of inferior.
I speak to flatter people, but I don’t dare to speak for a cause.
I feel pain of my loved ones, but I don’t feel agony of rest all.

It seems SIN is my master; it reigns over my soul,
I end up therefore doing things, I intended never to perform.
Who can deliver me from this struggle! That is raging within my soul,
Since I try so hard to be good, but end up being a fool.

I realized then in my spirit, transformation is what is required,
I need help of someone, to mend my broken life.
In midst of all confusion, I realized something divine,
God stood right beside me; and watched me all the time.

So, I prayed to God in secret; Lord Transform my darkened life,
Give me strength to overcome, give me thoughts pure-divine.
In my spirit I then realized, JESUS CHRIST has paid the price,
HE alone can be my SAVIOR for HE has given his precious life.

I went down on my knees, confessed my sins with a cry,
I found God’s amazing grace, my sins were washed thereby.
Peace that transcends all understanding, descended into my mind;
Changed my life forever, moved me from death to life.

If you want to change this NATION; you need to know the truth divine,
JESUS CHRIST is who this NATION needs; for HE can transform hearts and minds…for HE can transform hearts & minds.
