A response to the tragic Earthquake in Haiti

written, performed and produced by Jonathan Patrick Moore

HAITIAN PRAYER


The desperate plunge from shadow into darkness,
The collapse of a proud nation to its core,
The cries of many orphaned and more hopeless,
Resounding like a wave from shore to shore.

Hardly one stone left upon another,
Terror unimagined sweeps the land,
The question begged again "Who is my neighbor?"
The one who hears the cry and lends a hand

We have our problems as yet unsolved
We still have dreams to dream and yet,
We have been blessed with an abundance,
That many take for granted and forget,
Even though we've walked through many valleys,
There are some who walk a valley deeper still,
And trapped within their night of degradation,
Long to see a light upon the hill.

We light a candle here, whisper a silent prayer,
That the Haitian people would know peace and freedom,
So light a candle here, whisper a silent prayer,
That the Haitian people would know peace and freedom,



Putting all our lives into perspective,
Witnessing the toll of tragedy,
Even strong men breaking down in sorrow,
Letting others see their frailty.

Huddling masses finding little comfort,
Stare into a bleak and hopeless future,
Praying that the powers of the first world
Release the better angels of their nature.

We have our problems as yet unsolved
We still have dreams to dream and yet,
We have been blessed with an abundance,
That many take for granted and forget,
Even though we've walked through many valleys,
There are some who walk a valley deeper still,
And trapped within their night of degradation,
Long to see a light upon the hill.

We light a candle here, whisper a silent prayer,
That the Haitian people would know peace and freedom,
So light a candle here, whisper a silent prayer,
That the Haitian people would know peace and freedom,
