In Love with Fear

Oh Lord
We are a culture
In love with fear
And afraid of love

Be not afraid, you call

Many of the same souls
Who shout
With closed minds
And plugged ears
That the government
Shall not have any role
In regulating
Weapons

Be afraid, they say

Are the same souls
Who demand
With closed hearts
And clenched fists
That the government
Shall have the ultimate role
In regulating
Love

Be very afraid, they say

For without our guns
To defend our lives
And without our bibles
To defend our prejudices
Surely we shall perish

Be not afraid, you beckon

Oh Lord
Free us from fear
That leads only to death
And open us to  love
That leads to abundant life

Amen
