How Far Can Greatness Fall?

O America, how far can greatness fall?

Our armies strength is mighty yet
Prosperity still flows
But loss of Godly character
Has struck a mortal blow.

From following lies, we must leave
And from seeking our own ways
Then turn once more to our father's God
The Author of our days.

Remember still the words of those
Who bravely came before
Who knelt as if on hallowed ground
Upon these rocky shores.

They claimed this land for Jesus
And His it still remains
But if, through sin destruction comes
It's we who hold the blame.

For our God, He is a jealous God
An All Consuming Fire
And that which He calls Holy
We must not defile.

So train your children early
And in repentance heed His law,
And though America stumble
God forbid she fall.

Oh, that's great!
"So train your children early
And in repentance heed His call,
And though America stumble
God forbid she fall." That speaks my heart for me.
