America - The Glory is Departing

 

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.

Respected by allies and feared by foes,

A once-free country, you now face many woes.

Of all the nations, God made you the best,

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

So far removed from all once possessed,

Your people in every city, deeply distressed.

America! Turn to the Lord before it’s too late.

And pray you’ve not already sealed your fate!

Hear the Lord’s pleas,

And fall on your knees.

That He may restore,

And bless you once more from shore to shore!
