(1) The land of the free,
(2) The home of the brave,
(3) Though our armies fight,
(4) He alone can save.

(5) Abortions, murders,
(6) It’s falling apart,
(7) Oh America,
(8) You’re close to my heart.

(9) As we keep sinning,
(10) We add to our stains,
(11) And this free country,
(12) Is locking her chains.

(13) The country I love,
(14) In many a prayer,
(15) Is there any hope,
(16) Or should we despair?

(17) His soldiers, arise,
(18) All the old, the youth,
(19) Prepare for battle,
(20) We must fight for truth.

(21) So come all Christians,
(22) Sinners saved by grace,
(23) Let us tell others,
(24) So they’ll see His face.

(25) Oh America,
(26) Your people must yearn,
(27) And give up their sin,
(28) So humbly, return.

I hope that Christians and non Christians will read this and realize how much as individuals and as a country we need God.

It is so neat!My lesson at youth group tonight was about this very thing. You're right. We Christians need to do something. It's awesome that you are bringing this issue to surface through your writing! God bless!
