What’s happened to this world--in ignorance we’ve digressed
God’s love’s been purposely trampled by those whose souls can’t rest
There was a time our leaders went to God for answers clear
How did we get so distanced from the One we should be near

There must be some accounting for these leaders of disgrace
Complacency must die today if we’re to win this race
Casualties are everywhere--guilt rests on sagging shoulders
Heavy hearts with faces red--we failed Him as His soldiers

Our tolerance is ending--what a shame it took so long
Apologies are urgent as we plead, “Forgive our wrongs”
Is laziness to blame when we turned the other cheek
Afraid to get involved and ashamed for being weak

In war parents mourn o’er graves of fresh turned sod
In peace nations die as they turn away from God
Let’s not be embarrassed to repent on bended knees
We must bow our heads in worship then follow Jesus--please

Together we’re an army and together we must stand
As we yield to El Shaddai and submit to His commands
Nations are being ravaged by those who follow greed
But souls fed by scripture will find nourishment they need

2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. . . It is God’s way of preparing us in every way, fully equipped for ever good thing God wants us to do…
2 Timothy 4:3 For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to right teaching. They will follow their own desires…
(NLT)

Oh how true this poem is! A once Christian nation, now allowing God to be removed at every turn. It is indeed an embarrassment how we have allowed our nation to fall away from God and allowed low standards and morals to become as normal. Well told.
