The crest cried
As the sea roared.
And your tears I saw.
As our world lives in fear,
Do know dear,
That I still care,
Your anguish I shared,
Much more your anger.
Despite the great shake,
Place Him on high praise,
The devastation His awesomeness.
As humans we can only say amen,
Never to question His greatness.
Forever remains His goodness.
Take heart Beradette,
Till the world everlasting.
Remember, He 's still your everything.
