"Good evening. This is Charlene Lewis for the 6:00 news. Today, June 25, 1962, the Supreme Court has ruled that school prayer and Bible reading shall cease in all public school systems. It is now official; God has been removed from the classroom in the United States of America."
The ball got dropped in '62 They wouldn't let children pray in school Violent crime began to rise The grades went down and the kids got high Free love, gay rights, no absolutes, abortion on demand Brought VD, AIDS, and no morality Today no one knows right from wrong There's blood on people's hands World, you had your turn at bat Now stand back and see
That it's our turn now Something's gonna change We're gonna bind the devil at every hand by the power of Jesus' name Well, it's our turn now think it no surprise When the gates of hell come crashing down And you begin to see the church arise
The Supreme Court said, "No God at all" With the Ten Commandments on their wall God's Word in the library won't appear We have a religious apartheid here Humanism, atheism, no Bible, our consciences have died We need to seek our God and call His name The church triumphant's still alive and we're gonna turn the tide 'Cause with boldness and conviction, we proclaim
Arise and shine, for the Light has come It's time to lift the name of Jesus high
Yes, it's our turn now Something's gonna change We're gonna bind that devil at every hand by the power of Jesus' name It's our turn now, think it no surprise When the gates of hell come crashing down You begin to see the church arise It's our turn now It's no surprise See those gates of hell crash down When you begin to see the church arise
