Raising The Standard, Independence Day Edition: We Need God In America Again... and yeah, I Stand For America With All My Heart

George Washington, Thomas Jefferson Samuel Adams, First Chief Justice John Jay Names synonymous with the spirit of our country Founding fathers of the U.S.A. Over 200 years ago they shook off the chains of tyranny from Great Britain By divine call Citing 27 biblical violations they wrote the Declaration of Independence With liberty and justice for all But something happened since Jefferson called the Bible the cornerstone For American liberty then put it in our schools as a light Or since "Give me liberty, or give me death," Patrick Henry said Our country was founded on the Gospel of Jesus Christ We eliminated God from the equation of American life Thus eliminating the reason this nation first began From beyond the grave I hear the voices of our founding fathers plead You need God in America again Of the 55 men who formed the Constitution Fifty-two were active members of their church Founding fathers like Noah Webster who wrote the first dictionary Could literally quote the Bible chapter and verse James Madison said, "We've staked our future on our ability to follow The Ten Commandments with all our heart" These men believed you couldn't even call yourself an American If you subvert the Word of God In his farewell address, Washington said, "You can't have national morality apart from religious principle," and it's true 'Cause right now we have nearly 150,000 kids carrying guns To these war zones we call public schools In the '40's and '50's student problems were chewing gum and talking In the '90's, rape and murder are the trend The only way this nation can even hope to last this decade Is put God in America again The only hope for America is Jesus The only hope for our country is Him If we repent of our ways stand firm and say We need God in America again Abe Lincoln said, "The philosophy of the classroom in one generation Will be the philosophy of government of the next" So when you eliminate the Word of God from the classroom and politics You eliminate the nation that Word protects America is now number one in teen pregnancy and violent crime Number one in illiteracy, drug use, and divorce Everyday a new holocaust of 5,000 unborn die While pornography floods our streets like open sewers America's dead and dying hand is on the threshold of the Church While the spirit of Sodom and Gomorrah vex us all When it gets to the point where people would rather Come out of the closet than clean it It's a sign that the judgment of God is gonna fall If there's ever been a time to rise up Church, it's now And as the blood bought saints of the living God proclaim That it's time to sound the alarm from the Church house to the White House And say, "We want God in America again" I believe it's time for America to stand up and proclaim That one nation under God is our demand And send this evil lifestyle back to Satan where it came from And let the Word of God revive our dying land For Jesus Christ is coming back again in all His glory And every eye shall see Him on that day That's why a new anointing of God's power's coming on us To boldly tell the world you must be saved Because astrology won't save you, your horoscope won't save you The Bible says these things are all a farce If you're born again, you don't need to look to the stars for your answers 'Cause you can look to the very One who made those stars History tells us time and time again To live like there's no God makes you a fool If you want to see kids live right Stop handing out condoms and start handing out the Word of God in schools The only hope for America is Jesus The only hope for our country is Him If we repent of our ways Stand firm and say We need God in America again We need God in America, God in America God in America again
