America - The Glory Has Departed

America, America you were so very blessed.

You loved the Lord, and His truth you once professed.

You honored His Word and blessed His name,

but now you put them both to shame.

You were respected by allies and feared by foes;

a once free country, you now face many woes.

Of all the nations, God made you the very best,

but now your name, is oft’ said in jest.

You are so far removed from all you once possessed,

with people in every city thoroughly distressed.

America, turn back to the Lord before it’s too late,

and pray you have not already sealed your fate.

Hear the Lord’s pleas,

and fall on your knees.

Perhaps He will restore,

blessing you once again from shore to shore!
