Pray For The City/ Chicago
By Veronica Michelle Benson

A law that is not for me
Is against me

How can I expect the same one
That convicts me
To acquit me

Pray for the city
Death and destruction
Is in the history
And is written
For a place
That’s sin ridden
Where crime is committed and then hidden

Pray for the city
Everyone is involved
All is lost

The devil’s for hire
But God is the boss
PRAY for the city!
