Repent

Justice for injustice
We cry so loud and long
Yet for our own injustice
We cry, we aren’t wrong

Our country ever killing
Babies in the womb
Yet faced with thoughts of dying
We cry, not for us the tomb

We are a guilty people
Our conscience seared at best
We cry for peace and comfort
We cry, God give us rest

The blood of guilt is on us
On us and on our land
May we see our guilt Lord
We cry for help to stand

May we repent together
And turn our country too
Lord give us your forgiveness
You cry, that this we do
