Thanks to CJ Campbell for his suggestion on the first verse.
-------------------------------------------------

(spoken) Corrupt government...
Secular media...
Godless education...
Disgusting entertainment...
Self-centeredness...
Materialism...
Wordly, hypocritical Christians
How did we fall so far?

(music starts)

1. I lift up my eyes and see a grand banner waving overhead
Old Glory she's called, sprinkled with stars, blue, white, and red
Centuries in the making, a history of mistakes and victories
How can you not see the Hand of the Almighty?

Over time we've witnessed the morals slide
People beg to do whatever they please
The experts strive to destroy all faith
So many Christians want to live in ease

And so we declare...

(chorus 1) God blessed Amer-i-ca
Land that I lo-ove
God blessed Amer-i-ca
With more than we're worthy of
God save Amer-i-ca
Raise your torch of salvation
God save Amer-i-ca
And awake the heart of our nation

2. Morality swiftly bleeds to death
Our sin and pride are unsurpassed
Will we be Ninevah or Sodom and Gommorah?
Have we learned nothing from the past?

I can't sit here while it all unravels
200 years is too young to die
We've gotta fall on our knees and live by the Book
Awaken us again, Lord, let us all cry

(chorus 2) God blessed Amer-i-ca
On thee He shed His grace
God blessed Amer-i-ca
And in return spit in His face
God save Amer-i-ca
A shining city on a hill
God save Amer-i-ca
And lead her to your will

3. Land of the free (pause/echo) because of the brave (pause/echo)
From sea to shining sea (pause/echo) from the cradle to the grave (pause/echo)
You and I created equal (pause/echo) united we stand (pause/echo)
In God we trust (pause/echo) proclaim it across the land (pause/echo)

Let's sign a declaration of dependence... on Providence

(chorus 1 with lots of heart)

God save Amer-i-ca-a
God save Amer-i-ca-a
God save Amer-i-ca-a
God save Amer-i-ca-a

God save Amer-i-ca-a
God save Amer-i-ca-a
God save Amer-i-ca-a
God save Amer-i-ca-a

America wor-ship God
