Many Are Grieving - Massive Earthquake!

Many are shocked
How sad can this day be?
Some are still trapped
Some traumatized grievously

Our precious Cathedral
Has bowed under natures force
This massive earthquake
Instantly ‘changed our course’

This disruptive event
Who can really comprehend
Our Garden City is devastated
Oh for this horror to end

Beautiful Christchurch
Bought to her knees
Lives have been lost
Suddenly time did freeze

.....When A Great Shaking
Threatens our place
Systems are challenged
So we rely on ‘much grace’

.....When her Master entered
She could not hide her sorrow
Her heart was broken
How could she face tomorrow?

He took her hand
Walked by her side
Received His comfort
With Him she could confide

Written Tuesday 22nd Feb. 2011

“Even when I walk through the darkest valley
I will not be afraid
For you are close beside me
Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.”

Psalm 23 verse 4
