SOUL OF AMERICA

America, the beautiful (365-185)

America

At the Crossroads

America’s Soul seems to be bound up and tied

Lord—

Untie the knot

Let America’s Soul be blessed once again

 

Cleanse–

Wash us thoroughly

Purge us with waves of mercy so we will be cleansed

Waterfalls—

Let Thy waves of Love and Glory

Wash America’s heart thoroughly from our sins

 

Lord–

We prayerfully humble ourselves

Help us turn now from our wicked ways

Seek–

We seek Thy face

Please hear our prayer and heal our dry land today

 

Create—

Create in us a clean heart

Renew a right spirit within our inner soul

Wash us—

Cleanse us thoroughly

Let Thy tides of time restore America’s Soul once again.
