I can feel your eyes upon me; you are not welcome.
I hurry to complete my tasks; you reckless phantom.
Divine power raises its brow; I am never forgotten.
Intervention is necessary by the one who's begotten.
Freedom of expression is and will be prevalent.
Consideration and understanding is never absent.
Speak to me, O Lord, so that I may succumb oppression.
Heal me from the pain which creates this depression.
Lift me higher into your world, so I find peace and harmony.
Take away their strength by weakening their defensive armory.
This I pray as I sing in your glory; never denouncing You.
This I pray for our country we decorated in red white and blue.
This I will shout from every mountain, and every roof-top proclaim!
As I walk in your bounty; feared with the power of your Holy Name!
