"Prayer for the Gulf Coast"

Never get old, I heard her say
Remember that you have today
Quick as a breeze it blows away
And buries life in tears
It buries life in tears

Living each day like it’s your last
Looking ahead into the past
Distant storms approaching fast
May overtake your fears
Will overtake your fears

May the road rise to meet you
May the sun keep you warm
May you find your hearts desire
And shelter from the storm

When house and home are lost and gone
Faith alone will lead you on
Alive to see the breaking dawn
Keep your children near
Just keep your children near

The sun continues across the sky
Only those who’ve passed know why
Angel voices sing on high
And shed a single tear
Shed a single tear
