We Need The Lord

We thrive on our rights 
We live for the moment 
"Hey could you stop a second 
I need directions," 
But we can't hear that 

We speak of liberty 
We speak of peace 
"Father I come before You 
today.." 
Hey---stop that, you can't 
spread your Christianity! 

We speak of love 
United We Stand 
"Hey, I got a box of flour, 
wanna run an Anthrax scam?" 

What is wrong with us 
Why is our country so disillusioned 
Why have they all decided 
To get together in this union 

If the Civil War couldn't do it 
And WWI and 2 
Why on God's green earth 
Are we settling 
For something that just won't do 

We need the Lord 
There's unity in His peace 
We need His love 
His blood and everlasting grace 

You took my Father away from me 
Yet you still speak of Freedom of Speech 
You took the conversations We used to have 
And you have the nerve to laugh 

What will it take 
To turn your eyes away from the world 
What will it take 
To allow our voices to be heard 

I'm not Maya Angelou 
Jill Scott or India Arie 
But I sure do understand 
And see what we need 

We need the Lord 
There's unity in His peace 
We need His love 
His blood and everlasting grace 

We need the Lord 
Why can't this country see 
That in order to reach Him 
We have to get on our knees
