“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.“ (2 Chronicles 7:14)

How long hath God bestowed His care
On this indulged, ungrateful land!
How oft in times of danger near,
Preserved us by His sovereign hand!

Here peace and liberty have dwelt,
The glorious Gospel brightly shone;
And oft our mightiest foes have felt
That God hath made our cause His own.

But, ah! both Heav’n and earth have heard
Our vile requital of His love;
We, whom like children He has reared,
For all His care unthankful prove.

See! He uplifts His chastening rod!
O, where are now the faithful few,
Who tremble for the ark of God,
And know what Israel ought to do?

Lord, hear Thy people everywhere,
Who meet this day to weep and pray;
Our sinful land in mercy spare,
In mercy turn Thy wrath away!

John Newton
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17)
