America Again

Has anyone heard this song by Carmen? I think it was released in the late 80s or early 90s. It's a wonderful song and very true to our times. Below are the lyrics:

AMERICA AGAIN

George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams,
first Chief Justice John Jay.
Names synonymous with the spirit of our country.
The Founding Fathers of the USA.

Over Two Hundred years ago, they shook of the chains of tyranny
from Great Britain by Divine call.
Citing 27 biblical violations, they wrote the Declaration of Independence,
with Liberty, justice for all.

But something happened since Jefferson called the Bible the cornerstone
for American liberty, then put it in our schools for a light.
Or since "Give me liberty or give me death" Patrick Henry said,
"Our country was founded on the Gospel of Jesus Christ."

We eliminated God from the equation from American Life.
Thus eliminating the reason why this nation first began.
From beyond the grave I hear the voices of our founding fathers plead,
"You need God in America again"

Of the 55 men who formed the constitution,
52 were active members of their church.
Founding fathers like Noah Webster, who wrote the first dictionary,
could literally quote the Bible, Chapter and Verse.

James Madison said, "We've staked our future on our ability to follow
the 10 commandments with all our heart"
These men believed that you could not even call yourself an American
if you subvert the word of God.

In his farewell address, Washington said "You can't have national morality
apart from religious principle," and its true.
Because now we have nearly 150,000 kids carrying guns
through these war zones that we call public schools.

In the 40's and 50's student problems were chewing gum and talking.
In the 90's rape and murder are the trend.
The only way this nation can even hope to last this decade
is put God in America again.

Chorus:
The only hope for America is Jesus.
The only hope for our country is Him.
If we repent of our ways, stand firm and say,
We need God in America again

Abe Lincoln said, "The philosophy of the school room in one generation,
will be the philosophy of government in the next."
So when you eliminate the word of God from the classroom and politics,
you eliminate the nation that Word protects.

America is now number 1 in teen pregnancy and violent crime.
Number 1 in illiteracy, drug use and divorce.
Every day a new holocaust of 5,000 unborn die,
while pornography floods our streets like open sewers.

Americas dead and dying hand is on the threshold of the church.
While the spirit of Sodom and Gomorra vex us all.
When it gets to the point the when people would rather come out of the closet than clean it,
it is the sign that the judgment of God is going to fall.

If there has ever been a time to rise up Church, its now.
And as the blood bought saints of the living God proclaim,
that its time to sound the alarm from the church house to the White House
and say, "WE WANT GOD IN AMERICA AGAIN."

I believe its time America, to stand up and proclaim,
"that one nation under God is our demand."
And send this evil lifestyle back to Satan where it came from.
And let the Word of God revive our dying land!
For Jesus Christ is coming back again in all his glory.
And every eye shall see him on that day.
That’s why a new anointing of Gods power is coming on us to boldly
tell the world you must be saved!

Because astrology wont save you.
Your horoscope wont save you.
The bible says these things are all a farce.
If you're born again, you don't need to look to the stars for your answers,
cause you can look to the very one that made those stars.

History tells us, time and time again,
to live like there is no God makes you a fool.
If you want to see kids live right,
stop handing out condoms and start
handing out the word of God in schools.

Chorus:
The only hope for America is Jesus.
The only hope for our country is Him.
If we repent of our ways, stand firm
and say, We need God in America again.

That was one of Carman's best albums, imo.

I've heard this before. It is a very powerful song and it is as true now as it was back when it first came out.
