Merle Haggard – Jesus, Take A Hold lyrics

Like the ancient Roman empire, this world is doomed to fall
And it’s much too big a thing for mortal man
Just take a look around and see the writing on the wall
Somehow we’ve got to find a helping hand

This world has never been in the awful shape it’s in
And people scorn the things our leaders do
It’s time a prayer was spoken from the heart of every man
Jesus, take a hold and lead us through

The mighty roar of gunfire is now a local sound
And our city streets are filled with angry men
Law’s now a mockery throughout our troubled land
And destruction seems to be the current trend

This world has never been in the awful shape it’s in
And our leaders seem in doubt, what to do
It’s time a prayer was spoken from the heart of every man
Jesus, take a hold and lead us through
Jesus, take a hold and lead us through
