“What Is Going On?” by Rita Clayton


Can this be a dream?

I just want to scream!

We have to stay at home

But we can use the phone

It came on so fast

How long will it last?

You know what I am talking about

It’s the coronavirus — we shout

There are some rules to follow at home

Six feet apart, all alone

Wash your hands for 20 seconds

Do this often for the records

Keep it up the best you can

Till they lift this awful ban

Go outside if there is room

Maybe it will end real soon

When will they lift the ban?

We have to do the best we can

Pray for everyone each day

That’s all I have to say.


“The Only Safe Place” by Darrick Rudison


He that dwells in the secret place

In the almighty shadow is safe.

Under His wings like a mother hen

There’s protection from COVID-19 amen.


These days many are wearing masks

People are still dying that a fact.

I trust in the Lord with all my heart

He like a shield protects me from Coronavirus darts.


A thousand may fall by my side in the land

And ten thousand at my right hand.

It won’t come near me at all

Because God’s angels won’t let me fall.


Jesus is coming back real soon.

Those without Him will be doomed.

Wake up people these are the last days

The Lord’s name is a strong tower the only Safe Place.
