They desired their freedom so they started to row.
Traveling across the ocean their spirits were high.
They knew that this voyage could mean live or die.
They found a new land and the future looked bright.
They cleared and they tilled till late every night.
That first year was hard as the weather prevailed.
The suffering was great but they never had failed.
Their goal was for freedom from those who had rule.
Who had treated them poorly and sometimes quite cruel.
They trusted in God and their faith was intact.
They would fight for the lowly and would always react.
They planned in their schedule to talk to God on their knees.
They knew that their hope was only through Him who sees.
They knew that their future was not in their hands.
So they made sure that government would seek out His plans.
Now let’s move ahead to the time of today.
And check out the people to see what they say.
They have freedom of speech and can carry a gun.
They have plenty to eat and plenty of fun.
They indulge in the flesh and the pleasures of life.
Without even a thought of being loyal to a wife.
They have put God aside and so freely will say.
That the kids in our schools have no right to pray.
It seems there are those that this country they hate.
Their loyalties been given and they’ve opened the gate.
They play with the enemies of this great USA.
There’s no right or wrong and everything’s OK.
I fear that the future might be looking somewhat dim.
For we are so blessed but have forgotten about Him.
Like the fathers of old we must again raise the bar.
And may we never forget just “How Blessed We Are”.
