Our American Birthright

Poetry Spotlight

Written by: Judge Roy S. Moore





One nation under God was their cry and declaration,

Upon the law of Nature’s God they built a mighty Nation.

For unlike mankind before them who had walked this earthen sod,

These men would never question the Sovereignty of God.


That all men were “created” was a truth “self-evident,”

To secure the rights God gave us was the role of government.

And if any form of government became destructive of this end,

It was their right, their duty, a new one to begin.


So with a firm reliance on Divine Providence for protection,

They pledged their sacred honor and sought His wise direction.

They lifted an appeal to God for all the world to see,

And declared their independence forever to be free.


I'm glad they’re not here with us to see the mess we’re in,

How we’ve given up our righteousness for a life of indulgent sin.

For when abortion isn’t murder and sodomy is deemed a right,

Then evil in now called good and darkness is now called light.


While truth and law were founded on the God of all Creation,

Man now, through law, denies the truth and calls it “separation.”

No longer does man see a need for God when he’s in full control,

For the only truth self-evident is in the latest poll.


But with man as his own master we fail to count the cost,

Our precious freedoms vanish and our liberty is lost.

Children are told they can’t pray and they teach them evolution,

When will they learn the fear of God is the only true solution.


Our schools have become the battleground while all across the land,

Christians shrug their shoulders afraid to take a stand.

And from the grave their voices cry the victory has been won.

Just glorify the Father as did His only Son.


When your work on earth is done, and you’ve traveled where we’ve trod,

You’ll leave the land we left to you, ONE NATION UNDER GOD!
