Say a little prayer for Me
From sea to shining sea
For though I am still free
I'm not quite feeling like the old Me

I was strong and lead the way
I made sure you had your say
We rejoiced in a new day
Then politics came into play

From the unborn, to prayer in public place
They began to dismantle My Face
Taking from Me all Gods Grace
As for more I brace

I can not do this alone
For His Light on Me has shown
Yes, we have grown
But just listen to Our tone

Denying the Lord above His Praise
Is a common theme now a days
So as He does look down and Gaze
He knows that this is not a phase

So say a little prayer for the free 
From sea to shining sea
That Gods Will will again be
And I'll get back to feeling like the old Me
