“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.
