I Only Ask Of God…

praying_handsRecently, while I was switching channels looking for the CBeeBies BBC channel for my little one, I came across this tune/song I Only Ask Of God by a group Outlandish on one of the channels.

Immediately, just as soon as I heard just the first line, it brought tears to my eyes. I had only recently written a small post Sometimes I Wonder… These lyrics somehow took me back to that state of mind all over again.

I have put the youtube video below the lyrics as well. Read the lyrics and see the video and decide for yourself. seeing the video gives the words more impact.

I Only ask Of God:

I only ask of God
He won’t let me be indifferent to the suffering
That the very dried up death doesn’t find me
Empty and without having given my everything

I only ask of God
He won’t let me be indifferent to the wars
It is a big monster which treads hard
On the poor innocence of people
It is a big monster which treads hard
On the poor innocence of people

People…people, people

I only ask of God
He won’t let me be indifferent to the injustice
That they do not slap my other cheek
After a claw has scratched my whole body

I only ask of God
He won’t let me be indifferent to the wars
It is a big monster which treads hard
On the poor innocence of people
It is a big monster which treads hard
On the poor innocence of people

People…people…people

Solo le pido a Dios
Que la guerra no me sea indiferente
Es un monstruo grande y pisa fuerte
Toda la pobre inocencia de la gente
Es un monstruo grande y pisa fuerte
Toda la pobre inocencia de la gente

People…people…people
