ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
One nation under God,” is what our founders said,
But something happened on the way. They now say God is dead.
I know our God lives on. He stands at heaven’s gate.
And He will bring our nation back from greed, and lies and hate.
Under our pow’r alone, we cannot run the race.
He sent His dear Son, Jesus, to die and take our place.
Because He is our God, He’ll never let us stray.
He holds our hands and leads us into His holy way.
In this new day and age, we strive to do what’s right,
We try not to offend; we try with all our might,
But when the road is paved with misery and fears,
Our hearts must stay with Jesus, to overcome the tears.
God is not dead at all. He lives in you and me,
If we remain in Him our conscience will be free,
So join your hand with Jesus throughout this earthly life,
He’ll give you strength and hope. He’ll take away your strife.
When we turn back to God, His arms are open wide.
He doesn’t look at our mistakes, instead He looks inside.
So let’s get back to basics and remember who we are.
Though life may change, our God remains, He’s carried us this far.
