As the deer pants for the water,
So we have longed to see
Your righteousness restored, oh Lord
With the demise of abortion on demand in our land.
This was a seemingly impossible task,
The world told us.
“Abortion is our right,”
They screamed, as millions of babies died.
For fifty years Roe hung
Like an evil dark cloud of judgment
While many mocked You and Your Word
As approving of such barbarity.
But we, the remnant, had faith in You,
In justice and truth.
We drank the tears of repentance for our nation
And prayed diligently, without ceasing.
We hoped in God alone,
Therefore, we know our redemption
Was secured. Those who trust in You
Are never disappointed!
Thank You, Father!
Thank You, Jesus, the Son!
Thank You Holy Spirit, for guiding us!
All glory to You.
As hard as we have worked,
To see this day of joyful deliverance,
We know it was not our efforts,
But the Lord’s grace. Amen!
That grace that pardons and cleanses within,
Grace that is greater than all our sins.
Even the great sin of abortion
Melts away— as far as the East is from the West
Your grace removes our transgression
And gives us hope for the future.
Now, we pray peace in our land, Lord.
Calm the hearts not set on you,
Let not the Enemy use and abuse
Any more women in the cause of death.
Help us to care for all mothers
And their children, born and unborn.
Help us to trust and pray, even more,
Until the day of Your return.
