We confess the sins of our nation
And Lord we are guilty of a prayerless life
We’ve turned away our hearts from Your laws
And have taken for granted Your unchanging grace
Turn away this curse from our country
We say that we’ve robbed You and our storehouses are bare
Open wide the floodgates of heaven
Rebuke the devourer so we may not be destroyed

You said that if we’d humble ourselves and begin to pray
You would heal our barren land and cleanse us with Your rain

Don’t pass us by, let this be the generation Lord
That lifts up Your name to all the world
Save us oh God, save a people for yourself oh Lord
Let the fear of the Lord be their standard
Save us oh God, cleanse us from our unfaithfulness
Let the place where we live be called a house of prayer
