Shake Up No. 2
A reflection on the second and biggest Christchurch Earthquake (the February quake) and the way every denomination had churches damaged but that did not stop them doing His work and made necessary uniting together to show the much needed love and grace that comes only from The Lord.
Another big shake up
With damage so grand
Death and injury everywhere
How could this be considered fair?
Lord from the start
Your hand could already be seen
You already had in place
People to rapidly assist
To help and show
Your Love and Grace
Army and navy servicemen
Many highly skilled doctors...
Right there on the scene
Commencing first aid much quicker than one
Could ever have dreamed
Many ,that don't know you Lord wondered why.
Disaster relief experts from all over the world
Immediately came to our nation's aid
Joining as one bringing equipment and skills
Helping our rescue teams.
Christian people showing
How they love Jesus their Lord
Following His example carrying on His work just as before
Reminding us again a church is it's people
Following their true solid rock
Jesus, God's only son
Not the church buildings
That fail in ground moving shocks
Was this a call to unite our country, like never before?
Calling all Christians to wake up and unite
To bring others to know, love and follow You Lord
Overcoming national damage caused by sin
So in our country the devil can never win
And for evermore has lost the fight
Then with everyone following You Lord
Our country and countrymen will be alright.
