America Has Sinned!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

America Has Sinned Against God!

God is awesome!  And keeps his love’s covenant!

He shares this with those who love him, in abundance!


But America has sinned and rebelled

 against the laws he’s given!

We’ve turned away from his righteous way of livin’!


We haven’t listened to his prophets from long ago!

And have brought his holy wrath upon our souls!


The lord is righteous!  But we’re covered with shame.

And have brought dishonor to God’s holy name!


We’ve been scattered, because of unfaithfulness!

We have disobeyed God’s call for righteousness!


God is merciful and forgiving, in spite of our rebellious way.

We need to listen to his word, and what HE has to say!


We have transgressed HIS laws, with those of our own.

And have brought his judgment into our homes!


The curses written by Moses, are coming upon us!

Very soon, we shall see much disaster all around us!


The God who brought Israel out of bondage, wants to free us!

Just look at the many addictions

that are with us!


God, please hear the prayers, as your people call you!

America is at a crossroads…  And really needs you!


Please don’t forsake us now!  Please come and heal us!

America needs to come and ask you to forgive us!


God is and will always be what America has needed!

Without him…  This country is defeated!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
