America, turn back to God!
In whom you openly declared that you would trust
It is engraved on paper, but not in your heart
It is not too late to make a brand new start.
What will it profit you to gain the whole world?
At the expense of losing your own soul
What can you give in exchange?
Rise up take courage and be strong.
Repent! And turn back towards God
Just as the Prophet John says we must
America rise up in prayer and take your place
Look up and seek God’s face.
I lament, I cry and I pray, that
America would find her way
Come back to the God who loves you
With steadfast and sure mercies.
Prepare the way of the Lord!
Join together and pray on one accord
Make His paths straight, and not crooked and bent
Send up a fragrance and not a continual scent.
How long will you make Him wait?
Rise up and be the Country that you were called to be
Open your slumbering eyes so that you can clearly see,
Who it is that is calling you to be all you are meant to be.
