Hello everyone! I am Aubrey's sister Kellie (You may know me from the ''Mars Explorer theme song''). I was recently inspired to compose my own song - and here is is:
 
 
                Freedom of the Nations
 
 I got the idea for this song from 2 Chronicles 7:14-15 and Psalms 2.  It's set to one of my favorite celtic tunes, the foggy dew, which is about the easter rising of 1916 in Ireland.  (I am hoping to record ''The Foggy Dew'' sometime soon and add it to this page.  It might be awhile though...=)
 
 Something interesting I noticed about the passage in 2 Chronicles is that the Lord says ''if my people''.  
If we as christians would unite in prayer and in obedience, if we would humble ourselves and repent of our wicked ways, then he would heal our land.  I find this inspiring.  
 
 
 
 
1: If my people's hearts are humbled, if they pray and seek my face,

 if they turn away from evil, I will not withhold my grace.


 I will hear their prayers from heaven, I will pardon every sin,

 if my people call upon me, I will heal them from within.


 For if my people shall come as one, if they seek to know my face;


 I will pour the grace of heaven down upon their broken land,

 all shall see - my mighty hand.



2: The kings of the earth set themselves against the Lord,

 and my people heard not my cries.


 They are scattered and broken, they trust not in my name,

 their hearts are filled with greed - and lies.


 Oh ye are weak, but I am strong, why will ye trust not in me?


 Be wise, now therefore, all ye judges of the earth, 

 serve the Lord, with fear - and rejoice.



3: If my people's hearts are humbled, if they pray and seek my face,

 if they turn awy from evil - I will not withhold my grace.


 mine eyes will see their sorrow, and my ears will hear their plea,

 if my people's hearts are humbled, I will set their nation free.


 For if my people come to my throne, and repent of their wicked ways;


 I will pour the grace of heaven down upon their broken land,

 they shall have freedom in my mighty hand.

That's beautiful Kellie.  I've always found 2 Chronicles 7:14 to be inspiring, and Psalm 2 as well.
 
Something I was just recently thinking about, is the phrase "God Bless America".  How can we (America) ask for blessings when we've turned away from God and towards evil? 
"Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD;" Psalm 33:12a
America can't expect to be blessed when she's taking God out of everything, and when the churches are no longer teaching the truth.
 
I'll have to learn to play The Foggy Dew on my mandolin:-)

Thank you=)
 
That is exactly the message I wanted to convey.  We see signs saying ''God bless America'' everywhere, but when is the last time you've seen ''America bless God? ''
 
The sad thing is, the Lord made those promises to his people.  But the Christians of America seem to be just as divided as the world.  
 
The mandolin and accordion will sound great together!:^)

It is sad.  Well, all we can do is stand firm and sell our lives dearly, right?:)
 
They will sound great together, that is, if you can hear the mandolin...=)
