One Nation, Under God ~ Restored August 27th, 2014

One Nation, Under God

 "One nation, under God,
Indivisible," it says.
"One nation, under God,"
So our forefathers led.

 They didn’t quite apologize,
When they referred to God.
They never were the least ashamed,
Or weak, those men of God.

Oh, God! For men like that today;
Who held Your banner high,
Who vowed to live was 'Christ to live'
And it was gain to die ...

Who knew that wrong was never right
And right was never ever wrong,
Who stood for You and never winced;
Their voice muscle in Your song!

"One nation, under God ..."
"One nation, under" ... who?
Can men repeat that precious pledge
And do the things they do?

God, help us stand with courage new
And bind our nation's wounds.
Let strong knees bend, MEN lift, again,
Their voice in prayer to You!
