Make Us Great Again

by Colan Hiatt
(Mount Airy, NC)

When God created the human race
He formed man and then his mate
It was in His image and likeness
This He deemed good and great

The fall came when they departed
From guidelines He had set
A gulf existed that separated
Him from those, He had beget

He paved the way through the ages
To reconcile a fallen race
Repent and submitting to His will
This alone, - - would sin erase

This could make us great again
If we would only comply
Abort "our way", and trust in His
As Proverbs 3:5,6 - does imply

We find chronicled in God’s Word
Many events, that testify
Of those who were restored
When His offer, they would apply

Peter fell from his position
Denying Jesus that awful night
Through bitter tears he was restored
A great Apostle, that became contrite

Paul, on the Damascus road
His life was corrupt and vile
After yielding to the Masters call
He ministered to, Jew and Gentile

The Samaritan woman at the well
Who had a sordid past
After her encounter with the Master
A great message, - she forecast

The formula for "being great again"
For an individual or a nation
Can be found in 2nd. Chronicles 7:14
It can deliver us, - from damnation
