“I can’t stand anymore!” I cry into the night.
As I walk arm in arm, united our fight.
Backs will not bend, our heads we hold high,
We carry on living. We never will hide.
“I can’t stand anymore!” Cries out from town spaces
We gather; we march; all different races.
Candles we burn as we shine forth our light,
together united is how we will fight.
“I can’t stand anymore!” ‘Again’ is our cry.
How many more of our family must die?
Together again, another wrong against man
Our faceless enemy has killed -too many again.
“I can’t stand anymore!” I thought this would end.
It’s now trucks, not bombs killing family and friends.
Let us live, let us dance, let’s us sing and ride bikes.
Carry on all the usuals, desires and likes.
“I can’t stand anymore!” Now you’ve shot up our churches!
You’ve come in our home; you thought you could hurt us.
Oh sure we cried, we stood back, we looked shaken
wondered why, looked to GOD - asked why they were taken?
IT’S HERE THAT I KNEEL. “I’m not standing anymore!”
Not lighting candles, singing songs, wondering why- what for?
It’s here in full armor we kneel and hold ground
I backup no further, our enemy’s been found.
IT’S NOW FIRM THAT I STAND in truth, righteousness, readiness and faith
Now in GOD’S full armor we’re defending our space.
Our helmet salvation, with the Spirit of our our sword
We fight the ruler of darkness-strong in our LORD.
Let’s not stand anymore; instead,.. let’s kneel in prayer
Full in GOD’S armor,... fully prepared.
Yea though we may walk the valley of death
No evil we fear-on blended knee,.. till last breath.
Ephesians 6: 10-18
