Memorial Day

Memorial Day, an American holiday observed on the last Monday of May, honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, at least, it marks the beginning of summer.

 

AMERICA NEEDS GOD 

 

AMERICA NEEDS GOD NOW MORE THAN EVER BEFORE,

SHE NEEDS TO TURN HER HEART BACK TO THE LORD;

OUR FOREFATHERS FOUNDED OUR COUNTRY ON FAITH,

AND WE STILL NEED HIM IN OUR LIVES TODAY.

 

AMERICA NEEDS GOD TO BLESS HER AS A NATION,

SHE STILL NEEDS TO HEAR THE GOSPEL SALVATION;

WE NEED TO BATHE HER DAILY IN PRAYER,

TO TESTIFY OF HIS LOVE AND GRACE EVERYWHERE.

 

AMERICA NEEDS GOD TO SHINE UPON HER AGAIN,

THAT SHE MIGHT REPENT AND TURN FROM HER SINS;

FOR SHE HAS DRIFTED FROM THE NARROW WAY,

AND IT WOULD MAKE OUR FOUNDING FATHERS AMAZED.

 

AMERICA NEEDS CHRISTIANS TO FALL UPON THEIR KNEES,

TO PLEAD FOR HER SALVATION AND LIBERTY;

FOR THE ONLY FREEDOM THAT IS TRUE AND REAL,

IS THE FREEDOM THAT COMES FROM DOING GOD'S WILL.
