Our Country, Our Time

Ezek 9:4 and the LORD said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.”

The time has come I am sorry to say, that it's our country now that needs the tears.
It’s been getting worse as time goes by as people grow less respectable through the years.

I remember a time in my 83 years that doors were unlocked and safe few did curse.
Children could play in the streets and parks with no fear of thugs and worse.

In Congress now there is little respect and for the President, there is open hate.
I fear more for our country every day and wonder if we are headed soon for Jerusalem’s fate.
