America
by Kim Langley

America, you're standing on my holy ground
I have given you everything, just look around

I stand here today and look at you and weep
My love for you as a nation runs ever so deep

I have blessed you from the moment this nation was born
I look at the chaos now and how my heart mourns

America I call you and you turn a deaf ear
You walk away from me, leaving me standing right here

Churches are on every corner but my spirit is denied
I'm not allowed to enter because you have too much pride

America, my paradise, you've lost your first love
You're no longer content with blessings from above

Your thoughts consist of greed and power
Never realizing you're now living in your final hour.

Drugs and alcohol have become your child's best friend
Parents, did you take time to warn them of the dangers of sin?

The world is at war and hatred fills the land
Repent and come back to me America, do it while you can.

The stench from the world has reached Heavenly places
It's coming from all directions and from all races.

I weep when I see what you have become
I loved you enough to send my only son.

My son, my only son, died while hanging on the cross
He bled for each of you, to save you from being lost.

Now you have scoffed at all my teachings,
you have been lulled to sleep.

By the forces of darkness while I watch, and I weep
As the final minutes of time are slowly ticking away,
I wonder where you'll be on that great judgment day.
