God bless America,
This country built by grace,
Restore the faith that made her great
That she might seek your face.
Forgive the self-reliance,
Rejection of Your Word,
And grant us the desire
To let Your voice be heard.
No longer do we stand with pride
To bear Your holy name,
For "Christian" now's so widely used
It doesn't mean the same.
Forgive us, Lord, we've wandered far,
Restore us by Your grace,
For You, Lord, first established us,
Redeem this fallen race.
Restore to us Your conscience,
Desire to follow You,
Renew our land that we again
Your principles pursue.
Pour out Your Spirit on our land,
Your mercy may we know,
And in humility we ask
That strength and wisdom grow.
A special blessing, Lord, we ask
For those who rule and lead,
Reveal Your wisdom and Your grace
That Your work may succeed.
We thank You for our country,
This land that You've made great,
With You as our foundation
May love replace all hate.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
