Southern Baptist Choir Sings Ode to Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ Slogan at ‘Celebrate Freedom’ Rally

DALLAS, Texas — A Southern Baptist choir sang a song based on President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan during Saturday’s “Celebrate Freedom” rally in the nation’s capital, sponsored in part by the First Baptist Church of Dallas.

The song, which is now licensed by the worship music resource group Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI) for other churches and religious gatherings to sing, had been written by the church’s former music minister, Gary Moore.

“Americans from ev’ry corner of this blessed land/Come together with one voice/Help us take a stand/Following the vision to make her proud and grand/And make America great again,” the choir sang out.

The brief tune followed a rendition of “Break Every Chain,” led by Leo Day, the dean of the School of Church Music at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. The song speaks of the power in the name of Jesus.

Robert Jeffress, leader of First Baptist Church of Dallas, praised the president from stage as being a sign from God that He is not finished with America.

“In recent years, there have been those who have tried to separate our nation from its spiritual foundation,” he lamented. “This has caused many of us, especially Christians, to wonder, ‘Is God finished with America?’ Are our best days over? Has God removed his hand of blessing from us?”

“In the midst of that despair came November the eighth 2016,” Jeffress continued. “That day represented the greatest political upset in American history, because it was on that day that God declared that the people—not the pollsters—were going to choose the next president of the United States, and they chose Donald Trump.”

However, while the song was received with applause and cheers from those present, some who viewed the video footage of the performance expressed concern.

“It seems innocent enough. Indeed, if it were just another little ditty to whistle on Independence Day, it would be fairly innocuous,” wrote Jonathan Aigner for Patheos. “The problem is that it has been adopted by a significant portion of the evangelical church. It’s their mantra, their creed, and their prayer, and they shout it out with nationalistic fervor.”

“Pledging allegiance to God and to America in the same breath, melding together the kingdom of God and self, they pray a blasphemous prayer to a red, white and blue Jesus,” he opined. “How tragically this prayer cancels out the prayer of Jesus himself. The political church prays, ‘Make America great again!’ Jesus prayed, ‘Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.'”

Trump himself spoke to those gathered at the event, acknowledging that the freedoms Americans enjoy come from God and not man.

“Since the signing of the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago, America always affirmed that liberty comes from our Creator,” he said. “Our rights are given to us by God, and no earthly force can ever take those rights away. That is why my administration is transferring power out of Washington and returning that power back where it belongs to the people.”

“Our religious liberty is enshrined in the very first amendment in the Bill of Rights. The American founders invoked our Creator four times in the Declaration of Independence,” Trump stated. “Benjamin Franklin reminded his colleagues at the Constitutional Convention to begin by bowing their heads in prayer. Inscribed on our currency are the words ‘In God We Trust.’”

He tweeted the video of the “Make America Great Again” performance this morning, writing “#HappyIndependenceDay #July4 #USA.”

Note: Song begins at approximately 34:30 into the recording.

    Dozens Accept America As Lord And Savior At First Baptist Dallas Service
    July 4, 2017

    DALLAS, TX—After an hour-long service commemorating Independence Day at First Baptist Church in Dallas, a beaming Pastor Robert Jeffress reported that “dozens and dozens” in attendance accepted the United States of America as their lord and savior.

    The service’s patriotic songs, political message, and readings from the Founding Fathers all came together to powerfully convict many of their need place all of their trust in the modern-day nation.

    “When the massive flag unfurled behind the choir singing ‘Make America Great Again,’ I couldn’t deny my need any longer,” one emotional man told reporters after the service. “I surrendered my life then and there to the United States of America. May this great country change my sinful heart and make me into a new person.”

    “I even wrote the date in the front of my Bible so I’d never forget it,” he added.

    All of the new converts reportedly went forward after an impassioned altar call delivered by Jeffress and received a miniature American flag and red commemorative “Make America Great Again” hat, before being asked to recite the nation’s Pledge of Allegiance to seal the deal.

      Good old Pastor Robert Jeffress, exposing Himself as the Pharisee. He already has shown his colors when he made it clear he wanted Trump over Jesus. Now he is leading his followers right to the lake of fire. We need to pray for these peoples, as that is where Trump and his far-religious-right (aka Pharisees) want to take them. the Christians that want to make a home in those world when the Son of man had no place to rest his head,as stated in Luke 9:58 -These are the Christians that will accept the Mark-of the Beast, it’s going to be painted as a good thing as Satan is a liar, that’s what he does, lie and deceive. He’ll speak the truth every once in a while”, but will tell you ten more lies right after he is the Father of lies and Trump is the Son of lies.. just like his father.John 8:44

      • Chet

        Another case of harshly judging another. One supporting America’s president in no wise equates to his preferring such an one over the Christ of Calvary… Christians will never take the mark of the beast as we’ll be snatched away prior to his advent on this world… Your zeal would surely be better utilized in reaching the haters of God and His Christ, the scoffers, the blasphemers, those so satisfied within themselves of themselves along with the churched who’ve never been born again, never known Christ or who ave drifted away. They could surely use a great beacon of Light and Truth of the gospel’s soul saving message…

        • Puppy

          He is promoting a false Gospel with the American-first Spirit that goes,against the commends of Jesus Christ, He’s teaching those Christians to glorify and worships America instead of God. He knows,this,will lead his followers right to hell.

          Romans 16:18 – For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple. Matthew 24:11 And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people.

          • Chet

            Strongly disagree: A false gospel is that of promoting another route to Heaven beyond or besides that of the Lord Jesus Christ and Him crucified. This president’s doing no such thing. Those leading the bulk of folks to Hell are those in the fake ministry (Rev Wonderful) along with Hollywood and current music standards… Thankfully, the President is not accountable unto you or any other man for his own sins. Just like all the rest of us… “So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God” Romans 14:12, Holy Bible… Sorry you’re seemingly comfortable in trashing the man.
            We all would do well to so judge our own selves as we look in the mirror and while on our own knees praying…

          • Puppy

            This President has already called Allah God, He bows to the king of Saudi Arabia. He dances to their islamic sword dance. He calls Islam one of the three great religions That is a lie. Trump has already deny Jesus Christ, he,denys God and said he does not have to ask for forgiveness.

            Trump wants worship he sees Himself as God and is misleading a lot of Christians to the Lake of Fire” it would be wise for you to stand far away from Trump or else you will face God’s wrath he is a very jealous God,will,not share his holiness when it comes to worship

          • Chet

            I have enough trouble keeping myself unspotted from the world while maintaining focus on Christ and Him crucified in my stead. And, as well, I do well to daily recall His great mercy and grace towards me in concert with blessings untold and surely undeserved.
            Thus, my focus is not on trashing others, but, in winning the lost wherever possible and taking a stand for the gospel. Stand Up, Stand Up For Jesus Ye Soldiers Of The Cross. In doing so, I’m less likely to demean others, especially those of like precious faith, i.e., Graham, and, reportedly, Trump… Out.

        • Puppy

          – Neither Paul or Jesus taught a rapture. in John 17:15) Jesus says .My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. the Bible makes it clear the Antichrist will make war against the Saints who do you think the Saints is???

          • Chet

            The “catching ” away of the body of Christ is a real occurrence and the hour is indeed growing closer day by day as the world lies in wickedness and willful darkness… There is no fear of God before their eyes.

    • Puppy

      False Christ, false Gospel promoted by Trump that will lead them to the Lake of fire. Trump and false prophets don’t care they serve Satan and know what they are doing. Those of us whose eyes have been opened need to pray for deliverance for them meaning Trump supporters as they choose to believe a lie than the truth.

      Those of us whose eyes have been opened need to pray for deliverance for them.These, far-religious-right (aka Pharisees) are the same Pharisees that wanted Jesus dead, as they believe they knew God’s law better than Him, and it drove them crazy how he surrounded himself with sinners, those that were the least desirable.

      • Chet

        Strongly disagree. What “false Gospel” is the president promoting? I’ve followed him since his beginnings and have never noticed such. You accuse the man of serving Satan, wow, in doing so, you’ve set-up yourself as judge of another.

        In the 2016 election, Americans had to choose between two sinners, one, clearly supportive of abortion, homosexual marriage and clearly a non supporter of Israel. Americans chose the other sinner, one who cannot be bought, has no fear of men and promotes America as did President Reagan. And one who is now associated with Holy Bible believing Christians, unlike his predecessor.

        What does “far-religious-right (aka Pharisees)” mean to you?

        • Puppy

          The far-religious-right (aka Pharisees are those within the GOP/Republicans,Franklin Graham, that send peoples away from Christ, and leave the church who those who despised and rejected those who are Homeless, gays, prostitutes,homosexuals , drug addicts,alcoholics thieves and beggars, the Kingdom of Heaven is full of these peoples that lived” these former lives, but they have come to the feet of Jesus broken and lonely and starving to death for love and kindness and acceptance, they have been set free. And once they taste His true love they will never leave His side and go back to darkness

          Jesus said the religious hypocrites shut the kingdom of heaven up in men’s faces – they themselves will not enter in nor will they allow others to. (Matthew 23:13). But praise God, Jesus also said that the prostitutes and homosexuals and drug addicts and beggars and thieves that so many religious people in America despise and look down on will repent and enter the kingdom of heaven before they do (Matthew 21:31)The religious are dead in their sins and can’t repent because they won’t acknowledge sin in their hearts. Their pride blinds them and even allows them to hate and despise others thinking it’s ok.

          Franklin Graham,makes his Christian followers to think it’s ok to look down onto others, and the comment/treatment he has towards gays, as Christians we are told to hate Sin, but not the sinner, , Jesus commands us to love even towards peoples that are not like us, we don’t have to support what they do we are suppose to pray for them and love them, it’s what Jesus expects no exceptions….

          Many Christians should be praying for Gays and those who are look down apron in our country as Jesus said in Luke 15:10, there will be joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents,in Luke 15:1-7 Jesus says I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent

          • Chet

            So then, should not one spend at least half as much time in prayer for Graham and others as one would do in railing against them?

          • Puppy

            I do pray for Franklin Graham… Pray for him to get on his knees and beg God for forgiveness. There is a special place in hell for those money hungry monsters that use God to fill their pockets of $

            Franklin Graham, is a known good friend of Scientologist Greta Van Susteren. What many Christians don’t know is Scientology teaches “There was no Christ” and Greta is a dedicated Scientology member. Why would any so called Godly person surround themselves with Satanist?

            Franklin Graham, along with dozens of high-profile evangelists, are using God to serve themselves. He is one of those wolves in sheep clothing that Jesus warns the church about only difference is he’s misleading so many Christians probably to the lake of fire if they don’t wake up and see him for,who he is,,,

          • Chet

            Well, Sir, neither Graham nor anyone else can lead me to Hell as I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I’ve committed unto Him against that day. My faith is in the Christ of Calvary and in none other.

            Regarding Graham’s affiliation with Greta, well, I don’t know, perhaps within the bounds of their friendly relationship he is trying to reach her with the good news gospel. Surely, you know our merciful Lord, while He was by no means a compromiser, yet, he came not to call the righteous, but sinners unto repentance.

            Rather than be hung-up on the affairs or actions of another, good, bad or otherwise, would one not be better served and thus of more value to the Lord’s work and His will in spending max time in soul winning and passing out tracts etc., than decrying another?

        • Puppy

          The false Gospel” that Trump is promoting is n “America First” spirit, it glorifies and worships America instead of God. But God alone is who we should glorify in worship and nothing and no-one on earth.It’s one thing to pray for your country. Its another thing to worship it in song like an idol. The Church is suppose to be the Bride of Christ we are provoking our Husband Jesus to jealousy and He is a jealous God (Exodus 34:14)who jealousy desires our worship (James 4:5). Idolatry grieves the Lover of our souls it is exactly the same as a Woman like yourself???Who would grieve towards your Husband if he cheated on you with another woman.. When we as His Bride are unfaithful to our Groom it breaks Jesus’ heart!

          Understand???

          • Chet

            No, no puppy, I do not as I see no one worshipping America. Communists do such, not spoiled rotten freedom loving everyday Americans. They may worship themselves, or godless atheistic ideology in concert with “religion” with much formality and without Christ and cost of discipleship…. Many today are simply sky is falling global warming/climate change screamers of the First Confused Church of Mother Earth Worshipping Fools. One can indeed be part of the mystical body of Christ and aligned with a local church with full allegiance to the Christ of Calvary while as yet being thankful for his earthly citizenship in America, land of the free, home of the brave. I now, as I am one such Christian… Thanks for the exchange of views. Out…

        • Puppy

          My first answer was very long, but I had to explain in detail what the far-religious-right (aka Pharisees” mean to me. They are the teachers of the law that would stand against Jesus if he returned today. They see themselves as better than the despised and rejected, and judge them,harshly for their sins are the ones why many are leaving the churches,in today’s world..

          Franklin Graham likes to speak for Christians, or speak for Christ when no-one has told him to do this. He makes himself into this religious leader, while having no compassion for the poor and homeless, lives one of his many mansions in America. He will never be prosecuted he is a wealthy,millionaire and well protected in this world.

          • Chet

            Sorry, puppy, but you are waaaay off base. Are you at all familiar with Samaritan’s Purse? Regarding Graham’s espousing the gospel, he, just like all other ministers gets such directive from the Lord via His Word and His indwelling Holy Spirit. And not from other sinners like you and me. Personally, I know of no such far right religious Pharisees such as you’ve alluded to. Most of the modern world couldn’t care less about the things of God much less the will of God in Christ Jesus. Thus, biblical Pharisees would starve to death today…

          • Puppy

            Franklin Graham, along with dozens of high-profile evangelists, are using God to serve themselves In regards to Samaritan’s Purse.. no doubt many great works however Graham is CEO pays himself over 1,2 million yearly. When folks made their donations to SP, I’m sure all of them were believing most of their money would be used to help the poor. and desperate people around the world rather than to be used to pay a six figure salary to a multimillionaire. I bet 99% of those donors are much poorer than Franklin Graham

            Franklin was also cited by the US GOVT for taking TWO full time salaries from SP and BGEA… and was warned, the SP was also warned by the US GOVT about using such practices, many “recipients” have often complained in disaster situations that they COULD NOT get their aid from SP UNTIL they sat through PRAYER sessions.this is then NOT free aid.. this is a transaction.. you listen to our propaganda and then you get some goodies..

            That is NOT a sincere way of distributing AID

          • Chet

            Anyone receiving “prayer sessions” is in no wise getting “propaganda”. Besides, feeding, clothing and otherwise nurturing the lost without presenting the full gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ as described in Matthew 28 and Mark 16, Holy Bible, is an empty exercise in futility. Without the simple plan of salvation presented whenever possible, the results will be men fed, clothed, given fresh water, medicine, doctors and shelter while yet on their way to the madhouse of humanity, Hell…

That I believe without a doubt the United States will lead the World into the Antichrist One World Order. I believe the 4th kingdom of Daniel’s visions, chapters 2 and 7, is the American Empire that swallows up the entire earth under the dominion of the Anti-Christ (Trump) The American peoples have no idea how the US military totally dominates the world right now War and more war is on the horizon- as the US will subdue all nations soon.

      Trump and the far-religious-right (aka Pharisees) are leading once good-hearted Christians straight into the lake of fire his supporters worship Him, he is THEIR God. some compare him as God. Trump is the Antichrist, his supporters have gone against the bible and have Chosen to live in the world instead of the Kingdom of Heaven.

        I do civilly differ Puppy, in that I believe that Barack Obama is the actual antichrist (while agreeing with you that Trump has become an idol, for certain people).

        However, I condition this belief on whether or not Obama will take power again after Trump (which, under our current U.S. Constitution, is not possible).

          Can you explain how Barack Obama is the actual antichrist? Educate me please???. Let’s not let the devil keep us looking at the past when we need to be aware of what’s happening in 2017. The Bible says Anti-Christ will be LOVED by Jews and Christians. THEY HATE Obama,, Jews, sees him as a friend of Iran they will never accept Obama as the,Messiah as he is not a Jew and Muslims hate Obama in the Middle East because he has committed a deadly sin in their eyes and deserves to be put to death. By converting to Christianity while he is a Muslim. Trump is the only one who got Israel and it’s neighbor on a Peace Deal,Peace Deal where they all agree that Iran is the Greater Evil.

        • Puppy

          I believe that Barack Obama is the actual antichrist? That’s the difference,you say I BELIEVE”’ You never asked God to show you who is the Antichrist” GOD has shown me that Trump is the end times Antichrist, peoples don’t look at Him as a idol. His followers worship him”,they see him as GOD.

          You must open your mind and think like Satan, how he would deceive the Church, The Bible says the Antichrist will deceive Christians into thinking he is one of them” How can Satan do this with a Democrat??You must think like Satan one way to fool the church is to have the Antichrist come from the Righteous right, TRUMP is supported by, Evangelical Christians, they love him, and the Jews love him.

        • Puppy

          Trump has become an idol:, Yes Trump sees himself as God” and expects everybody around him to worship him” He claims he is beloved by everybody and everyone loves him’ if they don’t, he openly attacks them. How do I know Trump is the Antichrist??? Jesus was hated by Religious leaders, who believe they knew God’s law ”better than Christ himself. Do Religious leaders hate Trump?? No, they LOVE Him, and claim he is God anointed who has come to save America

          You JUST Said, Trump has idol Worship, that is a sign of the Antichrist.Those who worship do not question or criticize their idol. Those who call themselves Christian worship this man” He can do no wrong in their eyes and his supporters would all die for him if he asked them to.Christians ADORE antichrist TRUMP like it is written.Christians DO Not love Obama..

          Jesus said the Antichrist will deceive the very elect if possible?(Matthew 24:24 ..The WORD if possible means the Antichrist won’t be able to fool them, but he will be able to fool the rest of Christians as they aren’t the very elect, only those that truly follow Christ won’t be fooled by the Antichrist. OBAMA is Gone, just like Hillary it’s not possible for Him to get back in power in the United States, if something where to happen to Trump, Mike Pence becomes President, if something happens to Pence.

          Someone else who is 3rd in line” in the Trump administration becomes President, if something happens to that person??? The 4th person in line in the Trump administration will become president

    American liberals don’t love their homeland but only money, but President Trump makes them so mad they even forget that hating him causes loss to them and they continue pursuing the hatred against him. The Liberals can’t admit they’ve been utterly unfair to President Trump since the beginning. Their hatred against Trump is hatred against all proper conservatives. They can’t stand the fact that any conservative is in a significant power. The Russians and other nationals love and benefit the USA more than American liberals do.

    When Christ returns He will destroy all worldly governments really. Christ said in John 12:31, “Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out.” In John 18:36 it states, “Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.” This world and all of its worldly systems belong to Satan, hence all the evil. Why should a Christian be involved in a system that is filled with corruption and goes against God? Why should a Christian be involved in a system that will eventually be removed by God? Christ used His precious time on earth teaching others The Way unto salvation. Christ is our perfect example and we are to love and obey the ways of God Almighty through Christ our Lord and not the ways of the world. Our mission, during our short stay on earth, is to spread the gospel (Matt 28:18-20).

  • Grace Kwon

    This news has been falsely broadcasted in nations such as Japan, as if President Trump made the church choir praise himself in the place of God like Hillary Clinton blasphemously did in her last campaign. European nations adopted Christian hymns and made them into national anthems; Americans should be allowed to hope that God would keep their nation gloriously Christian as well. For the Westerners, any honor meant being Christian. They should remember and repent and return to God, to the only Saviour Jesus Christ.

  • FoJC

    Trump is an adulterer. He is not a sign from God, just another politician vying for power and control. Although frustrating, it isn’t surprising to see fake Christians support him.

    Pride is the first known sin recorded in the Scripture. People who claim to be Christian and promote pride are simply promoting one of Lucifer’s key traits.

    Follow Jesus, find Truth.

  • calduncan

    What is the big deal? I hope any Christian would pray that his country would deserve to be called “great.” Nothing wrong with the phrase “Make America great again,” it’s a good slogan on its own terms. Just because Trump uses it doesn’t mean it’s wrong.

  • Reason2012

    No mention of God / Christ at all in that song. Be careful, people – singing is to worship God, not something else. To professing Christians: When God restored Israel time and again, did the Jewish people sing praises to God and exalt Him, or instead sing songs to make Israel great again?

    The song should have been about America making God great again – about God / Jesus Christ being lifted up and exalted – about those called by the name of Christ repenting and turning from their wicked ways – about the fervent prayers of a righteous man availing much.

    2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

    James 5:16 “.. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”

    For the first time in history a president of our country has openly proposed altering one of society’s (not to mention God’s) most fundamental laws: that marriage should be between a man and a woman. While I am not suggesting that President Obama is the Antichrist, the fact that he was able to propose such a sweeping change in God’s law and still win reelection by a comfortable margin illustrates how a future world leader will be able to oppose God’s laws without any repercussions. ~ Pastor Jeffress

    “If I could conceive that the general government might ever be so administered as to render the liberty of conscience insecure, I beg you will be persuaded, that no one would be more zealous than myself to establish effectual barriers against the horrors of spiritual tyranny, and every species of religious persecution.”
    ~Founding Father George Washington, letter to the United Baptist Chamber of Virginia, May 1789

    “Of all the animosities which have existed among mankind, those which are caused by a difference of sentiments in religion appear to be the most inveterate and distressing, and ought to be deprecated. I was in hopes that the enlightened and liberal policy, which has marked the present age, would at least have reconciled Christians of every denomination so far that we should never again see the religious disputes carried to such a pitch as to endanger the peace of society.”
    ~Founding Father George Washington, letter to Edward Newenham, October 20, 1792

    “We have abundant reason to rejoice that in this Land the light of truth and reason has triumphed over the power of bigotry and superstition… In this enlightened Age and in this Land of equal liberty it is our boast, that a man’s religious tenets will not forfeit the protection of the Laws, nor deprive him of the right of attaining and holding the highest Offices that are known in the United States.”
    ~Founding Father George Washington, letter to the members of the New Church in Baltimore, January 27, 1793

    “The United States of America have exhibited, perhaps, the first example of governments erected on the simple principles of nature; and if men are now sufficiently enlightened to disabuse themselves of artifice, imposture, hypocrisy, and superstition, they will consider this event as an era in their history. Although the detail of the formation of the American governments is at present little known or regarded either in Europe or in America, it may hereafter become an object of curiosity. It will never be pretended that any persons employed in that service had interviews with the gods, or were in any degree under the influence of Heaven, more than those at work upon ships or houses, or laboring in merchandise or agriculture; it will forever be acknowledged that these governments were contrived merely by the use of reason and the senses.”
    ~John Adams, “A Defence of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America” 1787-1788

    “I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibit the free exercise thereof, thus building a wall of separation between church and state.”
    ~Founding Father Thomas Jefferson, letter to the Baptists of Danbury, Connecticut, 1802

    “Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, then that of blindfolded fear.”
    ~ Founding Father Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, August 10, 1787

    “When a religion is good, I conceive it will support itself; and when it does not support itself, and God does not take care to support it so that its professors are obligated to call for help of the civil power, it’s a sign, I apprehend, of its being a bad one.”
    ~ Founding Father Benjamin Franklin, letter to Richard Price, October 9, 1780

    “Persecution is not an original feature in any religion; but it is always the strongly marked feature of all religions established by law. Take away the law-establishment, and every religion re-assumes its original benignity.”

    What’s really so idolatrous and worldly, though, sister Heather Clark, about Robert Jeffress and Gary Moore’s offering of this hymn – WHILE IN CHURCH – to the Zeitgeist, the Spirit of the Age, in America? I don’t know about you and your readers, but I can think of 5 reasons. It’s all in the lyrics:

    (1) “Americans from ev’ry corner of this blessed land”? TRANSLATION: Both Jesus-rejecting “Americans” and Jesus-following “Americans” are now in oneness here in the body of Christ that is the church. What makes that possible is God’s “bless”-ings that come automatically with “this blessed land” of America, from where they’ve all come. The true church in Christ, however, comprises not only “Americans” but also non-“Americans from ev’ry corner” of planet Earth, including the United States.

    (2) “Come together with one voice”? TRANSLATION: Brothers and sisters in Christ are supposed to “come together with one voice” – the “voice” of the man, Christ Jesus being the only Word of God. Here, however, Robert Jeffress and Gary Moore want both Jesus-rejecting “Americans” and Jesus-following “Americans” to be joined together by the Word of Man in and from Donald Trump being POTUS.

    (3) “Help us take a stand”? TRANSLATION: Brothers and sisters in Christ are supposed to “help” each other out, because He had been, and still is, “help”-ing them out by means of His crucifixion, burial and resurrection. But so they’ll do what, though? To “take a stand” for America under the Trump administration, or for God’s kingdom under the Jesus administration? Contrary to this hymn, it’s the latter, isn’t it?

    (4) “Following the vision to make her proud and grand”? TRANSLATION: Christ Jesus’ “vision” is “to make” the Father God all “proud and grand” and everything. And that’s the “vision” His true church is to be “following” – not POTUS Trump’s “vision to make” America “proud and grand”.

    (5) ‘And make America great again”? TRANSLATION: Was it ever Jesus and His first apostles and disciples’ church mission in the Roman empire in Israel, Judah, Samaria and Greece to “make” Rome, Israel, Judah, Samaris or Greece “great again”? No, right? God forbid, therefore, that His churches in the American empire ever make it their mission to “make America great again”!
