Good Old American Pride

We need a resurgence of patriotism,
Of good old American pride,
To stand for our God-given values
For which all our ancestors died.

We've lived on their blood and their merits,
Forgetting to take our own stand,
And now we're in danger of losing
The freedom we offer all man.

America! Wake up! Time is wasting!
God gives us the answer to win!
Freedom is costly, it comes with a price
And He paid it once for all men.

Our country is blessed, we can't lose it!
An offering we too now must make,
New commitments avow, on our knees humbly bow
And our sins in repentance forsake.

For our troops and their blood we're so thankful,
What a price their families have paid,
Our prayers we must offer to God on the altar,
The enemy's hand must be stayed.

"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble
themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their
wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive
their sin and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)
