MAY EDEN KNOW PEACE (a prayer for Nigeria by Owokere A. Etim)

May Eden know peace!

May Eden Know Peace!

May Eden know peace!
May the source of all races see bliss.
May the land where rivers meet
Cry not of a drought of peace.

May Eden know peace!
May Abel’s blood cry no more.
May Cain cease to be accursed
And his descendants bear no more his cross.

May Eden know peace!
May our source of strengths
Tear us not apart.
And make not our children stray off their tents.

May Eden know peace!
May the sacrifice of sweat and blood,
From our ancestors till date,
Be accepted as a token in exchange for love.

May Eden know peace!
May the children of Ishmael
Co-habit with the brothers of Christ
And both drop the rift to save our land.

May Eden know peace!
May Eve know the serpent’s deceit
And decline same, that Evil we may defeat
And put Eden where it glory seats.

May Eden know peace!
May Jezebel withdraw her troops.
May sanity returns to our youth
So we can restore our morality let loose’

May Eden know peace!
May the traitors be known by name
So that the heads justice shall serve on tray
Would be identified by their ill fame!

May River Niger quench my thirst.
May River Benue irrigate our land.
