Anna Costa Tesoriero
Ground Zero (Variation on The Psalms)
Lord, let me sleep peacefully this night.
Save from the terrorist site
of seeing bodies. seeing bones,
Evil has buried beneath the stones.
Lord, hear my plea.
Lord have pity on me.
Lord you are mercy.
You are love.
Near me,'though high in heaven above
where you reign.
Lord, take away this pain!
Now I pray.
Now I sing to you.
The heaven's and earth's all Powerful King.
You, who destroy evil all around.
You, who smash evil to the ground.
Conquer our enemies with all your might.
And turn this darkness into light.
