All across this great nation..…
It seems we lack a solid foundation!
As God is tossed out of government
It seems like just about
Even a symbol of a cross
seems to offend.
“How dare we call God a friend?”
Where are the Godly principles
this nation needs?
As the heart of this nation continually bleeds.
Not many seem to care anymore.
As more ungodliness comes ashore!
No wonder many people don't
know what to believe.
A lifestyle of lying, drugs and
sex is what they achieve.
In many lives, there’s
no "moral boundary."
Many carrying a lot of "dirty laundry."
To those of you who want
satisfaction and victory too...
There is a "moral compass"
that's freely offered to you!
This "moral compass," is God's word!.
it’s needed in this nation!
It speaks of God’s love
and his gift of salvation!
If you find life is filled with emptiness,
with no true meaning.
It's in the direction of Jesus
that you need to be leaning!
You don't have to live in
despair and defeat!
Jesus' grace and love will
make you complete!
