Like the ancient Roman Empire this world is doomed to fall,
And it's much too big a thing for mortal man,
Take a look around and see the writing on the wall now,
Somehow we've got to find a helping hand.

This world has never been in the awful shape it's in,
And the people scorn the things our leaders do,
It's time a prayer was spoken from the heart of every man,
Jesus, take a hold and lead us through.

Now the mighty sound of gunfire is now a local sound,
And our city streets are filled with angry men,
Law is just a mockery throughout our troubled land,
And destruction seems to be the current trend.

And our leaders seem in doubt just what to do,
It's time a prayer was spoken from the heart of every man,
Jesus, take a hold and lead us through.

(Brothers and sisters, let's all sing together now)

This world has never been in the awful shape it's in,
And our leaders seem in doubt just what to do,
It's time a prayer was spoken from the heart of every man,
Jesus, take a hold and lead us through.

From his album: "Travelling Country Man"
Songwriters/Composers: Merle Haggard
Contributed: Marten Busstra 2011
