The buildings were collapsing all around
People screaming then falling down
Than not making a sound.
( I smiled)
The ground started opening up
And people falling in.
( I smiled)
The sea waters overflowed on the land
Bringing destruction, mud, and sand.
( I smiled)
The skies turned completely black
And the sounds of the lightning’s cracked.
( I smiled)

A man stopped me and asked:
Why do you smile when the world
around you is falling down?

I responded : I smile because the lord walks
by my side, and fills my heart and soul.
I grabbed his hands- “ and he smiled”
Let me walk with you, for I also felt him too.

We walked hand in hand through this barren land.
Other people stopped and asked the same question.
Then took our hands and joined us too.
The salvation of the world was coming true.
Faith, hope, love , was following thru.

As the people joined and held hands
The destruction began to cease.
And in peoples hearts
They found relief and peace.

When they looked there were thousands
Holding each others hands
For this was – part of gods plan.
