Our nation right now is at a crisis
Because we have not paid the prices.
For tomorrow we were not concerned,
So the cost of apathy we’re about to learn.
Many children run the street like dogs.
The way we eat resembles that of hogs.
Self-restraint we can’t seem to find,
That’s why we have no peace of mind.
Our families are split or shattered,
Because self to us is what really mattered.
We’ve put God and His Word out of our lives.
They must be put back if we are to survive.
It seems appetites had all our attention.
Learn from the past we had no intention.
Forgetting tomorrow, we just lived for the day,
Making a debt we could never pay.
Now we must start to mend our foundations,
And begin to be concerned about our salvation.
Let’s do our jobs and forget all the chatter.
God and our families really do matter.
We must love our children,
And time with them spend,
If this nation God gave us is ever to mend.
Margarett Inez Bates
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the
people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach
to any people. (Proverbs 14:34)
