                       We The People...

They say that America the great, doesnít need God anymore.
       That God was just a superstition of our founders who came ashore.
Today, we are highly advanced. Priding ourselves in being realistic.
       Weíve talked ourselves out of believing in God, saying itís too simplistic.
But over and over, history has proven the cycle of manís behavior,
       has always led him back to the same place; seeking Christ the Savior.
It begins with prosperity, then rebellion, then the loss of freedoms come.
       After repentance comes deliverance and prosperity, as we return to the Son.
Iím glad our Founding Fathers realized it was God that made us great,
       or We The People would have sadly had a much different kind of fate.

Like when Columbus landed on San Salvador and put his ship at berth,
       he prayed, "Oh Lord, by Thy Word, Thou has created heaven and earth."
Or People like John Adams who said about his nations piety,
       "Religion and virtue are the only foundation to human society."
Or George Washington who said about God, Country and Paradise
       "Learn our arts and ways, above all, the religion of Jesus Christ."
"God who gave us life, gave us liberty," said Jefferson in a letter,
       "I tremble when I reflect that Godís justice cannot sleep forever."
Or how about Patrick Henry, to the Second Virginia Convention,
       "There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations."

Or John Hancock, speaking of the faith of Christians and countrymen,
       said, "All confidence must be on God, who rules the armies of Heaven."
Or like Andrew Jackson when he wrote a fallen generals wife and son,
       "Rely on our dear Saviour, trust in His mercy and may His will be done."
Or Lincoln, when speaking of what nations could and could not afford,
       said, "Those nations only are blessed, whose God is the Lord."
Yes, this is the way it always was and this is the way it will stay,
       if we want this country to always be great, we better learn how to pray.
For our peace and freedom will not survive if we turn away from the Lord.
       If foolish enough to try, weíll be visited by pestilence, poverty and sword.

   "Behold, this is a choice land, and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall be free from bondage,
   and from captivity, and form all other nations under heaven, if they will but serve the God of the
   land who is Jesus Christ." Ether, 2: 12. The Book of Mormon
