Elia Michael


God Is Good


God is good God is everywhere
God is good God loves us all
God is good God cares for all
God is good God is everywhere

God are you there when thousands scream?
When typhoons and tsunamis sweep?
When towers fall like in a dream?
When humanity has to weep?

Black-clad priests chanting Your praises
The censer's smoke rises to You
All the congregation gazes
At an icon which tears red dew

God is there when men are at war
There when men women and children
Are blown up into chunks of gore
Bloody gobs of flesh bone and brain

Fly through the golden evening air
God is good God is everywhere
God is good God loves us all
Millions from hunger fall

Women children beaten and raped
God is good God is everywhere
Disease takes lives, others are shaped
Without hope -their eyes a blank stare

Pain and suffering is their lot
Death has become a welcome friend
Like worthless insects he does swat
Their misery at last does end

Those left behind have to endure
Unendurable agony
Primal wails in an overture
Then a dirge of cacophony

God is good God is everywhere
And God is Love and God does care
