United firmly, once upon a time,
'Neath faith in God and freedom's crystal chime,
It seems she's sliding steeply from her prime.
The leaders humanistic mantras give;
Expunging precious lives before they live;
Diffusing "truth" strained through a Godless sieve.
Self-centeredness appears to reign supreme,
To counterfeit Americans' old dream
About hard work, and not just how to scheme.
The tried and true now plummet toward demise;
Each doing what is right in his own eyes;
Some seem to serve, but power is their prize.
Oppression will encroach, though in disguise,
For good of all, our freedom compromise,
And seek to suffocate God's truth with lies.
My hope is that the remnant who believe,
Exemplify God's love, and hearts retrieve,
Revealing hedonism does deceive.
I pray we reunite, turn back to God,
Confessing and repenting lest He nod
And substitute the staff in hand for rod.
Judges 21:25b. "Every man did that which was right in his own eyes."
