George Washington, Thomas Jefferson
 Samuel Adams, First Chief Justice John Jay
 Names synonymous with the spirit of our country  Founding fathers of the U.S.A.

Over 200 years ago they shook off the chains of tyranny from Great Britain By divine call
 Citing 27 biblical violations they wrote the Declaration of Independence 
With liberty and justice for all

But something happened since Jefferson called the Bible the cornerstone 
For American liberty then put it in our schools as a light 
Or since "Give me liberty or give me death", Patrick Henry said
Our country was founded on the Gospel of Jesus Christ

We eliminated God from the equation of American life
Thus eliminating the reason this nation first began 
From beyond the grave I hear the voices of our founding fathers plead 
You need God in America again

Of the 55 men who formed the Constitution 
Fifty-two were active members of their church
 Founding fathers like Noah Webster who wrote the first dictionary
 Could literally quote the Bible chapter and verse 

 James Madison said, "We've staked our future on our ability to fallow 
The Ten Commandments with all our heart"
 These men believed you couldn't even call yourself an American 
If you subvert the Word of God

In his farewell address, Washington said, "You can't have
 National morality apart from religious principle," and it's true
'Cause right now we have nearly 150,000 kids carrying guns
To these war zones we call public schools

In the '40's and '50's student problems were chewing gum and talking 
In the '90's, rape and murder are the trend 
The only way this nation can even hope to last this decade 
Is to put God in America again

The only hope for America is Jesus 
The only hope for America is him
If we repent of our ways stand firm and say
We need God in America again

Abe Lincoln said, "The philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation 
Will be the philosophy of the government of the next"
So when you eliminate the Word of God from the classroom and politics 
You eliminate the nation that Word protects  America is now number one in teen pregnancy and violent crime
 Number one in illiteracy, drug use and divorce  Every day a new holocaust of 5,000 unborn die
 While pornography flood our streets like open sewers 

America's dead and dying hand is on the threshold of the Church  While the spirit of Sodom and Gomorrah vex us all
When it gets to the point where people would rather come out of the closet than clean it
It's the sign that the judgement of God is gonna fall

If there's ever been a time to rise up Church, it's now
And as the blood bought saints of the living God proclaim 
That it's time to send the alarm from the Church house to The White House
And say, "We want God in America again"

I believe it's time America to stand up and proclaim 
That one nation under God is our demand 
And send this evil lifestyle back to Satan where it came from
And let the Word of God revive our dying land

For Jesus Christ is coming back again in all His glory 
And every eye shall see Him on that day
That's why a new anointing of God's power's coming on us 
To boldly tell the world you must be saved 

 Because astrology won't save you, your horoscope won't save you
The Bible says these things are all farce 
If you're born again you don't need to look to the stars for your answers 
'Cause you can look to the very One who made those stars

 History tells us time and time again 
To live like there's no God makes you a fool
If you want to see kids live right 
Stop handing out condoms and start handing out the Word of God in schools 

The only hope for America is Jesus 
The only hope for America is him
If we repent of our ways stand firm and say
We need God in America again
(repeat)

We need God in America 
God in America 
God in America again
