Ahmaud Arbery

We’re called to remember

In the deepest, darkest, deserts of life

God’s goodness is an oasis for the soul

Feasting on who He is revives…


Because He’s the same as He’s always been

He will work all the evil for good,

Even the heinous sin


I hear her crying in the streets

She wails with blood from two bullets

Streaming down her cheeks

Fear of the future of other fellows

Breaks my heart in two

Then I choose to remember God’s goodness

And I declare, “Justice will shine through!”

Ahmaud did not have to die,

Lord be with his mother, his family

America knows the reason why

We pray that the courts will hear and see



Coursing through veins of two men

They felt right in their own eyes, but THIS time LET justice win

Heal their hearts but may Lady Liberty not turn a blinded eye

Ahmaud gunned down, jogging while black

The video of hatred tells no lie

Lord, You are good.

Love mercy, do justly, walk humbly is Your call.

Bring good from this tragedy.

May Justice for Ahmaud arise, though #HETOO fell victim to the fall

The fall of humanity when sin in hearts remains unchecked

Heal our land Dear Father.

I recall Your goodness,

John 11,

“Jesus wept.”

You care for the deceased.

So should I.

So let the courts hear our justice cry

Let her also weep, “Ahmaud should




You are the resurrection and the life.

Resurrect justice and compassion in the Earth

In the deepest, darkest, deserts of life

I recall Your goodness when you put love first.

You died for those who hated/feared You

They did not know they were blind guides

You said forgive them Father, for they know not what they do

With Ahmaud You truly empathize

So Lord, let justice be found behind the courtroom doors

Still, In Your goodness

Heal us more

Heal our land

Atlantic to Pacific shore.
