More about Donnalynn Grunewald:
Most of my music is original. Because I have lived in small branches for most of my life, I try to write songs that can be performed by a small group or a choir of inexperienced singers.
Song background:

This piece was written during the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks. I wouldn’t call this an “easy” song. There are lots of key changes and some unusual harmonies, but I really think it is worth the effort to learn. Be grateful that I didn’t keep it in its original key. It started out in C major, but went through F mj., Db mj and ended in Gb mj. At least the new arrangement ending in four sharps is a bit more manageable.

Lyrics: Lord, have mercy on us all.
Lord, have mercy on us all.
We, Thy children of the latter day.
Of the latter day.

In this world of war and strife.
In this world of war and strife,
May we feel Thy Spirit ever near.
Feel Thy Spirit near.

Hold us in Thy loving hand.
Hold us in Thy loving hand
‘Till we know Thy everlasting peace.
‘Till we know Thy peace.

Lord, have mercy on us all.
Lord, have mercy on us all.
