Tear the heavens open

And come down Lord

For my people have all run mad

The young and the old alike

There is no one who is sane

They are all crazy

They are killing each other

And roasting the bodies of one another

They are about to each other's flesh

Or can't you see?

Don't you care?

Come down quickly Lord

And don't delay

Intervene once again

In our national affairs

And save us

From chaos, anarchy and doom.

 

Rent the heavens open Lord

And come down

For these are turbulent times

In our climes

You know Lord

That my generation has to contend

With an aberrant order

Where hell is constantly let loose

In hired assassination, armed robbery,

Street thuggery, religious bigotry

Political banditry and ethnic conflagration

Or can't you see?

Don't you care?

Come down quickly Lord

And don't delay

Intervene once again

In our national affairs

And deliver us

From our corporate insanity.

 

Tear the heavens open

And come down Lord

For one half of my people

Are drowning

While the rest are swimming

In the wrong direction

From the atrocities in Odi and Oleh

To the massacres in Ajegunle and Ketu

From the carnage in Kaduna and Kachia

To the blood bath in Aba and Owerri

From the genocide in Aguleri and Umuleri

To the fratricide in Ife and Modakeke

My people have tasted blood

And now they are drunk with hate

The stage is now set

For a total bloody showdown

Or can't you see?

Don't you care?

Rent the heavens open

And come down

Intervene once again

In our national affairs

And deliver us

From our collective death wish.

 

Rent the heavens open

And come down Lord

And intervene in our national affairs

That the Yoruba lions and the Hausa Leopard

May eat straws together

With the Igbo wolf

And that the innocent Igbo child

May play into the hole of the Hausa cobra

With no hurt, no harm.

Yes, that the angry Egbesu youths of Yenoguoa

And the militant OPC youths of Lagos

May shake hands of peace with their neigbours

That the blood thirsty Almajiris of Kaduna

And the crazy Sharia zealots of Sokoto

May embrace the Bakasi boys of Aba

That the ferocious dogs of Ife

May wag their tails at the wild cats of Modakeke

And that the fierce crocodiles of Warri

May swim peacefully

With the dreaded shacks of Port Harcourt

In the oily waters of the Delta.

 

Tear the heavens open

And come down Lord

Intervene in our national affairs

Enter into our boat

And calm the storm

Rebuke the whirlwind of death

And let there be life once again.

Chase out the demons of violence and crime

And let your peace and security

Reign in our land

Remove the blinders from our eyes

And deliver us from the darkness

That leads to destruction

 

Rent the heavens open

And come down Lord

Intervene in our national affairs

Teach my people the dynamics of peace

And show us the civilisation of love

Impress upon our hearts

That we cannot harvest a rose flower

Through planting a noxious weed

And that we cannot have peace

While harbouring hate in our hearts

Make us understand

That darkness cannot drive away darkness

Just as hate cannot drive away hate

That returning violence for violence

Only multiplies violence

Adding deeper darkness

To a night already devoid of stars.

 

Tear the heavens open

And come down Lord

Intervene in our national affairs

Look upon us with favour

As we celebrate the Great Jubilee Year

That we may have the generosity of heart

To offer and to receive forgiveness

For past hurts and wounds

Grant us the generosity of heart

That we may let go of anger and resentment

Over the injustices of succeeding governments

Since independence

That we may let go of the anger and bitterness

Over the atrocities of the civil war

And the gross violation of human rights

During the demonic dispensations

Of Babangida and Abacha.

 

Rent the heavens open

And come down Lord

Intervene in our national affairs

Teach us to forgive and forget

For a world without forgiveness

Is a cold world of endless strife.

As we look towards Easter

And the rejuvenation it promises

Let us witness a new dawn

In our country

Amen.
