This Land

Thank you Lord for this land
You hold all things in Your hand
Thank you for this land of plenty
This rich land of milk and honey
The freedom to come and go
The freedom to say what we know

Lord protect Your people’s rites
In our streets peace; not fights
Not be persecuted for our belief
And stand firm blocking unbelief
Being able to go anywhere to pray
Worship anywhere any time of day

Deep Place

Lord, this very hour
We need Your power
We don’t want to cower
We need Your shower
You are our strong tower

Pour out mercy and grace
Our transgressions erase
Peace and joy interface
Shine on each face
Touch us in that deep place
