    if this world was mine
    i'd command it to function
    in the manner which it was created
    i'd command peace/order to replace this chaotic storm
    and love to replace the hollow halls of hatred
    if this world was mine

    if this world was mine
    i'd teach others how to love themselves
    before trying to love somebody else
    i'd make wicked acts a thing of the past
    erase racism forever, at last
    if this world was mine

    if this world was mine
    i'd slow the wheel of life down
    and challenge every being to recognize
    how good, oh so good, our Creator is
    if this world was mine

    if . . . but it's not.
    i have no magic wand
    nor has the power been bestowed upon my hand
    but i know a man who has total control
    so, i must pray continuously for the blessings
    of Him who sustains us.
    for this world sure isn't mine
    it belongs to Him

    i'm kinda glad this world ain't mine:confused:

    If this world was mine
    I probably would have to kick me out of it
    So I am with you in agreeing that I am glad
    That this world is not yours or mine.
    But is left in the hands
    Of Him with the
    Master
    Design

    if this world were mine with a snap of my finger
    all people and things would disintegrate
    and i wouldn't consider to recreate
    but thank God it is not my choice to make
    if it were i'd end it with one quake and throw terrorists in the lake of fire for thinking they were serving me

    but God is greater than me

    tyte piece.
