Toxic Gumbo - v2

I see the pain on their face
The water all over the place;
It is terrible to see
I ache inside of me.

Far north from their plight
I hope they all can take flight;
To escape the pain they feel
And know our prayers for them are real.

We know You can touch their hearts
To make sense of their devastation and loss;
So watch over them all we pray
And hold them close to You each day.

Dear Lord, hear this plea
That they can be free;
From the loss they know so well,
In that toxic gumbo of hell.

Toxic Gumbo
Hurricane Katrina
and flooding in New Orleans’
9th ward
and the rest of the Gulf region
