This Nation

Lord, God of Creation
Forgive this nation
We have gone our own way
Did not follow and obey
Did what was right in our own eyes
We need our sinful ways realized
We turned our back to You
Doing what we wanted to do
If it felt good
Do it we would
Putting ourselves first
For sinful behaviors thirst
This we cannot afford
Forgive us dear Lord
Thinking we are mighty and grand
But we are standing on sinking sand
Giving into evil desire
Striving to get so much higher
Promoting perverse ways
Wanting the latest fad or craze
It’s You, Lord we need to please
Yahweh bring us to our knees
That we would turn from sinful ways
And follow You the rest of our days
Lord, to You it is not a hard task
Remove falsehood and every mask
The truth lay bear and exposed
The question has been posed
Which way will this country go
Only You, Lord God know
Lead us into repentance
Do not confirm a death sentence
We cry out for Your mercy and grace
All our rebellious sins erase
We love this country we live in
This country Lord You have given
