|I have to stop and wonder what exactly it is that makes us think that we are so much better than everyone else, and when I do, I find that we really aren't.|
AMERICA THE GREAT By A.M. Snead Once upon a time... There was a nation Great and strong It knew the difference between right and wrong It put its trust in God up high And favored truth against a lie But something happened as the years went by You can hear its children plead and cry For truth and justice they once knew For the honor of the red, white and blue So this nation once great and strong Now frames mischief by a law Puffed up with pride it stands tall Thinking it is ruler over all It's forgotten that Pride comes before destruction It's cast off the bible and all God's instruction It is wise in it's own conceit it does not recall That a haughty spirit comes before a fall And now this nation once great and wise Allows our unborn children to suffer and die And then redeem their honor by proclaiming great and small "We've done nothing wrong- They weren't babies at all" It's perverted God's word with all its abominations Turning truth into lie, wallowing in deprivation Women with women, Men with men It's an alternate lifestyle, It isn't a sin It hands out birth control like candy and pop "Just protect yourself- And Don't get caught" It's teaching our youth that sin isn't sin Have a good time, there's no Hell at the end This nation stands up before one and all And condemns our adversaries for their immoral laws It calls them killers, cowards and thieves When all along it's doing the same things We are called traitors if we speak the truth Criminal and abusive if we correct our youth Accused of hate crimes if we speak reality That God is against Homosexuality This nation was founded on God's commandments Where did it go wrong? What could have happened? One thing is for certain, listen close one and all If it doesn't get back to God this nation will fall It saddens my heart to make this call But perhaps America the Great...Isn't so great after all.
