Righteousness Exalteth A Nation

A mighty nation has arisen
From the ashes of history past,
From generations of immorality,
Into great darkness cast;

Founding principles set forth
By God's embodied Word
Comprised its constitution,
At this new nation's birth;

Equality of states,
With liberty for all;
God's Commandments taught in schools
Lest a precious child should fall;

Strong and mighty it emerged,
God's Word its sound foundation,
For the founding fathers knew
That righteousness exalteth a nation;

But gradually God was set aside
By wicked unbelievers,
Prayer was taken from the schools
By well intentioned leaders;

Future champions were aborted,
Falling prey to Satan's plan,
The Church lies quietly sleeping
While the devil raped the land;

Praise Hymns replaced by rousing beat,
Sermonettes and new age song;
The glory is departing.
I wonder what went wrong?

Proverbs 14:34 NIV   "Righteousness exalts a nation,
but sin is a disgrace to any people."
