UNCLE SAM WEEPS by Jan L. Grace

In this land of the free and the home of the brave, Kneels an old ragged man with his banner to wave

And he weeps,

Holding those Colors, the red white and blue, With hands rough and worn by the pain he’s been through,

How he weeps,

With tears in his eyes, and an ache in his chest, Remembering the day when his land was so blessed

Yes, he weeps.

 

His sons and his daughters had futures so bright, When all could discern ‘tween the wrong and the right

Hear him weep,

Each child was embraced by a mother and dad, The unborn were safe from the doctors gone bad

How he weeps,

Uncle Sam weeps for the fatherless child, The widow, the orphan, and a nation gone wild,

Yes He weeps.

 

Uncle Sam weeps for the fatherless child, The widow, the orphan, and a nation gone wild,

Yes He weeps.

 

There are battles abroad, and hatred within, All due to the color of a man’s skin,

Hear him weep,

“God Bless this nation”, we’ll sing before games, Then vote to remove the mere hint of God’s name

How he weeps,

Wrong is now right, and hope’s turned to fear, This progress has come o’er the past 50 years

Yes he weeps

 

Our nation’s soldiers, our best of the best, Face an enemy greater than all of the rest,

And he weeps,

Engaged in a war, not for land, fame, or greed, But because of an ancient, terrorist’s creed,

How he weeps,

With a lump in his throat, and pain in his heart, He watches his nation be torn apart,

Yes he weeps

 

Uncle Sam weeps for the fatherless child, The widow, the orphan, and a nation gone wild,

Yes He weeps.

The DC Elite and Supreme Court Nine, Turn opinions to law, as his God they malign,

How he weeps.

Uncle Sam weeps for the fatherless child, The widow, the orphan, and a nation gone wild,

Yes He weeps.

 

Uncle Sam bows at the foot of the cross, Lifting hands toward heaven, may all not be lost,

And he weeps
