O'Jerusalem!

This ‘Road to the Holy land’
Littered with blood
Road to the Holy land
With bullets and holocaust
Road to the Holy land
With grenades and guns.
This Road to the Holy land
Fought by countries and kings
This Road to the Holy land
Negotiated,betrayed.
This Road to the Holy land
‘On the Cross’ - price paid
This Road to the Holy land!

Jimmy Carter ,once American president ,founding chairman of the Carter foundation
and a nobel peace prize winner writes-‘The blood of Abraham,God’s father of the chosen ,still flows in the veins of Arab,Jew and Christian,and too much of it has been spilled in grasping for the inheritance of the revered patriach in the middle east.The spilled blood in the Holy land still cries out to God –an anguished cry for peace’

The question is -can we have peace even while we reject the Prince of Peace?
