Please God, won't You listen,
to my most desperate need -
without Your final remedy,
to rid myself of greed?
I want a magic potion,
or one fantastic pill -
that gives me everything I want -
good health, success, a thrill.
Go look inside your magic hat.
What goodies are inside?
I know all things are possible,
so please let me decide...
Then let me win the lotto.
I've only just begun -
to think of great things I could do
for each poor, needy one.
I'm not a little, selfish child -
but want You to respond,
to help me fix my problems with,
Your great and magic wand.
I promise that I'll listen.
I promise to obey -
if only You would wave Your wand
to take my ills away...
brainwashing little ones -
witchcraft spells and sorcery
beget the anger, guns.
Palm readings, stars and tarot cards,
or mystic crystal balls -
God but hears a 'song and dance'
each time the sinner calls.
We want for easy answers,
we grasp at every straw,
we wish for all our heart's desire -
but need our hearts to thaw.
When cities lay in ruin -
when we are all in tatters -
when hope hangs by a single thread -
then only God still matters.
