Never Forget

Never Forget

The shock the horror
Utter disbelief
Dear God what has happened
The shock, the fear, the grief

A moment in time
That rocked the world
Some cheering for evil
As the Eleventh of September, 2001 unfurled

An attack on our country
An attack on our soul
The heart of our nation
Suffered a horrible blow

Had we known then
What we know now
What would we do different
Why not now

Return to God
Embrace His covenant
Retrace the sacred
Remove this evil government

Stand up tall, unite
Speak up loud
Square our shoulders
Bring back American proud

It’s not enough to remember
If we do not learn
The church has a duty
Our nation’s government is our concern

Given a charge
By Christ alone
Before departing into glory
I can almost hear His tone

If they hate you
They hated Me first
I have chosen you
The work disbursed

Remember and Never Forget
To the end of the age
I Am is with us
Church Reengage

Deuteronomy 32:7
Remember the days of old; consider the years of many generations; ask your father, and he will show you, your elders, and they will tell you.

The Lord bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord cause His countenance to rise upon you and give you Shalom.

Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
