You knew we were addicts recovering and trapped by our every mistake
Our grief over goodness distorted would daily unsettle our souls
And though we found routes to oblivion
We constantly questioned our roles
Our planet breathtaking and awesome
With wonders we can’t comprehend
Yet daily humanity spoils it
It’s sickness and sin without end
Our peace we ourselves cannot furnish
No power have we to put right
We can only welcome our Saviour
Acknowledging His is the fight
