Foes and Similitude Lyrics & Music

Foes      Foes

lyrics

 

Sin, my worst enemy before,

Shall vex my eyes and ears no more

My inward foes shall all be slain

Nor Satan break my peace again

 

Let us remember him and lay aside our sins,

No drooping hands, for we are led by him.

Hymn #147

2 Nephi 10:20

 

 

In Similitude       In similitude

 

Who art thou, I am a son of God

Darkness I see, I discern between God and thee.

In the similitude of Jesus,

his countenance I see

 

I never cease to pray, all throughout the day.

 

What marvelous light fills my soul,

and sweet joy do I declare.

 

My soul did long to be there,

their love remember still.

 

 

Chorus or sung simultaneously

 

Look unto my God, look unto my God.(repeated twice)

 

I’ll praise him all, all the day long(repeated twice)

The Prayer of the Children

Can you hear the prayer of the children
on bended knee, in the shadow of an unknown room?
Empty eyes with no more tears to cry
turning heavenward toward the light.
Crying,” Jesus, help me
to see the morning light of one more day,
but if I should die before I wake,
I pray my soul to take.”
Can you feel the hearts of the children
aching for home, for something of their very own.
Reaching hands with nothing to hold onto
but hope for a better day, a better day.
Crying,” Jesus, help me
to feel the love again in my own land,
but if unknown roads lead away from home,
give me loving arms, away from harm.”
(oooooo la la la la etc etc.)
Can you hear the voice of the children
softly pleading for silence in their shattered world?
Angry guns preach a gospel full of hate,
blood of the innocent on their hands.
Crying,” Jesus, help me
to feel the sun again upon my face?
For when darkness clears, I know you’re near,
bringing peace again.”
