// Have Mercy O God! //

Have mercy O God!
On this, a nation once filled with light,
but now has put your Word far from sight,
flaunts her sins, black as night,
murders innocents, a terrible blight,
on this, a nation once filled with light.

Have mercy dear Lord!
Please open our eyes, help us to see,
your forgiveness is what we desperately need,
not jobs, or peace, or prosperity,
for Your grace alone is what makes us free,
please open our eyes help us to see. 

Have mercy O God!
Upon those who sorrowfully mourn,
for our once great nation, by sin now torn
Lift up your church, she sits forlorn,
exalt Your name, it bears much scorn,
and comfort those who sorrowfully mourn.  

Please remember to pray for America as we are facing troubling times. I'd encourage you to read Jeremiah 5, Jeremiah 27:5, and Daniel 4:17.  


  1. Great job with finding so many rhymes to express your prayer so well. I really hate how sin is so openly flaunted and praised these days. It's comforting to know that God notices those of us who sigh and cry because of the evil (Ezekiel 9:4). May God have mercy on his people.

    1. Yes, it's very disturbing to see an increase of people who "call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness" (Is. 5:20). Indeed, it is very comforting to be assured that the Lord is watching over His own.
