Katrina: ‘I join the queue on your answer phone and all I am is holding breath’ – frou frou

God be with you, mortal lands
though not my own to care
God save my wretched hands
and give my heart to share

for Heaven’s sake the people cried
their homes and pictures torn
for Heaven’s sake the people tried
to flee the tempest’s scorn

where God would be in times like this
you ask and beg and shout
‘why God’s right here in good ole Miss,
so stop yer aching doubt.’

we who pray pray prayers for you
from safe and far away
we who pray might think it due
to confess your sins today

God be with you, mortal lands
though not my own to care
God took away immortal hands
we guess He made it fair.
