|When disaster strikes|
When storm clouds threaten, and we're forced to face a great disaster,
Two natures battle in our hearts to see which one is master.
Our character is best revealed by how we choose to take it,
When hope is gone, and we have fears that we're not going to make it.
We might become belligerent, and turn against the Savior,
And grieve His heart, and cause Him pain, because of our behavior.
But maybe when disaster looms, we might rise up to meet it,
And ask the Lord to give us strength, and wisdom to defeat it.
Dear Lord, please warm our hearts, and make us care about our brothers,
Instead of thinking of ourselves, help us to think of others,
And help us lend a helping hand to those who hurt and sorrow,
So we can join in brotherhood to face a new tomorrow.
