He (Obama) Can Turn The Tides

I came across the lyrics to this song. I believe it was originally about God.

No more.

Obama's candidacy represents a sea-change in the cosmos. Here it is.

He (Can Turn The Tides)

He can turn the tides and calm the angry sea
He alone decides who writes a symphony
He lights every star that makes our darkness bright
He keeps watch all through each long and lonely night
He still finds the time to hear a child's first prayer
Saint or sinner call and always find Him there
And though it makes Him sad to see the way we live
He'll always say, "I forgive".

He can grant a wish or make a dream come true.
He can paint the clouds and turn the grey to blue.
He alone knows where to find the rainbow's end.
He alone can see what lies beyond the bend.
He can touch a tree and turn the leaves to gold
He knows every lie that you and I have told
Though it makes him sad to see the way we live
He'll always say, "I forgive".

Let's see how these lyrics play out as the presidential campaign proceeds.
