    forgive them father
    for they know not
    what they do to you

    forgive them father
    for they know not
    what they say to you

    forgive them father
    for they know not
    what they gain from
    telling the truth

    forgive them father
    for the plots of mass
    deception for their own
    protection

    forgive them father
    for the mental strain
    Saddam Hussein has
    put on the brain of his
    very own people

    radical Arabs sitting high
    upon a steeple inorder to
    gain power, fame, and
    recognition all in the name
    of ambition

    forgive them father
    for the immorality commited
    against us on behalf of Osama
    Bin Laden

    in the name of sibling rivalry
    Al-Queda members establish
    their own distinction through
    bombing both our twin towers
    in the city of 9/11

    forgive us father
    for the sake of the Bush
    Administration whose ignorance
    has corrupted the entire nation

    sullied by the freedom of his very
    own choice causing every woman,
    man, and child to lift every voice

    yet even in a time of despair
    members of your holy cabinet
    still rejoice as some form of recourse

    forgive them father
    for they know not
    what they do to you

    forgive them father
    for they know not
    what they say to you

    forgive them father
    for they know not
    what they gain from
    telling the truth

    They really don't know

    You know they really know not what they do...if they knew the rewards of the truth then maybe this war wouldn't be happening. Yet, I think of it this way: This is all revealed to us in God's Truth (His Holy Word) in the Book of Revelation..."Though millions may suffer, to die is gain if one lived for Christ"-- this lil bit of knowledge I gained from the Word, yet it is not a direct quote from the Word.

    Final Mystery Revealed

    If Jesus is the light and the way to finding love, inner peace, and personal happiness, then there is much to gain from being truthful with oneself.

    The Right Way and the Wrong Way/The Value of Wisdom(from the book of Proverbs)

    "My child, if you listen
    and obey my teachings,
    you will live a long time.
    I have shown you the way
    that makes sense;
    I have guided you
    along the right path.
    Your road won't be blocked,
    and you won't stumble
    when you run.
    ....You will walk safely
    and never stumble;

    you will rest without a worry
    and sleep soundly.
    So don't be afraid
    of sudden disasters
    or storms that strike
    those who are evil.
    Hold firmly to my teaching
    and never let go.
    It will mean life for you.

    Don't follow the bad example
    of cruel and evil people.
    Turn aside and keep going.
    STAY AWAY FROM THEM.
    They can't sleep or rest
    until they do wrong or harm
    some innocent victim.
    THEIR FOOD AND DRINK
    ARE VIOLENCE AND CRUELTY.

    ....My child, listen carefully
    to everything I say.
    DON'T FORGET A SINGLE WORD,
    BUT THINK ABOUT IT ALL.

    Knowing these teachings
    will mean true life
    and good health for you.
    Carefully guard your thoughts
    because they are the source
    of true life.

    Never tell lies or be deceitful
    in what you say.
    Keep looking straight ahead,
    without turning aside.
    Know where you are headed,
    and you will stay
    on solid ground.
    Don't make a mistake by turning
    to the right or the left."

    Hmmm, a very eloquent and touching plea Poetic. For their ignorance they shall surely pay, but it does not recouncile one to the wreckless waste of life. Your heart and spirit are so embracing. A rare quality to be found in many people today, and for that God will surely bless you. Peace.
