Our Country once trusted in God
but now we have gone astray
We banned prayer from out of our schools
and went on about our way
We cast behind the most important things
and left off to seek his advice
We spared the rod and allowed the children to rule
and now they are rolling the dice
We lock up the parents that have tried to teach
the way from right and wrong
We called it abuse when they needed correction
now the children are too far gone
We teach them hate and how to debate
about matters that affects us all
not realizing that it would face them one day
and would cause a many to fall
enslaved with prejudice all over the world
on the job, our church's and schools
in our states, countries, towns and all around
then we wonder why our streets are bloody pools
We set aside races, in ignorance we do this
yet we say our Country was freedom for all mankind
now we won't even try to get along with our neighbors
if their color or culture is not like mine
We tell our kids that this is accepted
even though God teach's us to love one another
so we allow it to go on, calling right
and start killing our sisters and brothers
but I see the wisdom, of our youth today
that they are trying, to make the wrong right
putting prayer back in school, and fear in their hearts
for they learned it was God's will, what an insight!
We have so much to answer for America
and we need to return to God's mercy and grace
put him back in our lives so to gain his favor
so he will help fight the battles that we face
We have to humble ourselves before him
for he says return, O Nation of men unto me
is this too much to ask, of such a loving God
who gave his life so all men could be free
We have put other God's before him
worshiped idols that's made of stone
We have accepted anything that comes along
and raised it to set on the throne
We surly have fallen far, from the only true God
and in our hearts we have cast him away
O' Amereica please return, to our God almighty
so he can wash our sins and iniquities away
Let us seek his face in prayer and supplications
let our souls cry out in despair
let us yield our hearts with sincere mournings
so that he can mend and repair
