We Have Sinned
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

We Have Sinned Against God!



Our country has sinned!  And many don’t know it!

Any reverence for God?  Many refuse to show it!


We have sinned greatly, in our desire

to leave God behind!

And have tried our best to remove him from our minds!


Even a cross or nativity is most often, not allowed!

The atheists?  You’ll find them

 in most every crowd!


We’ve traded God’s commands for our own “rules.”

How dare you mention HIM in any of our schools!


Whatever pleases the flesh is predominantly enjoyed!

As many people seek to fill an “empty void!”


Those standing for righteousness are often scorned.

“Don’t preach about God!”

 They’re often warned!


The freedom God gave us...  We’ve turned it around!

Perversions and addictions greatly abound!


His judgment is coming!  People may laugh.

But our country will endure his holy wrath!


Our only hope is to get back to God’s word!

His message of salvation needs to be heard!


Only Jesus can give a peace and love so secure!

We need him more than ever!  That’s for sure!


Through Christ’ blood, we can be a new creation!

Please come Lord Jesus and heal our nation!

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!
