Why has the need been forgotten?
It was a day of anger
So many full of rage
It was a day of sadness
A question on life’s page.
“How can these be so hateful?
How can they kill us so cold?”
T’was then resolve was hardened
And America waxed bold.
But more than this, in many heart
The realization came
God was indeed the answer . . .
And they were alien to His name.
So many began to seek Him
And pursue His lasting truths.
They knew they’d been neglectful
Their broken lives were proof.
Here we stand six years later
And America’s gone back to itself.
It has stopped seeking
God and His guidance
The Bibles are back on the shelf
Those who were trying to live right
Have forgotten the reason their zeal
Was sparked in the very beginning
9/11 is no longer real.
It is sad, it is hard, it’s confounding
Why God is no longer sought
By those people who six years
Cried out in their need
— Now they’re not.
The need has not gone
It is only the fact that their hearts
Have forgotten how lost
their souls are
And they’ve marked God’s
will off their charts.
I beg all the world now to listen
If you needed the Father that day,
Why are you now living
Why aren’t you still seeking
