In All These Things We Conquer

The markets crash, they’re tumbling
prophets on the corners are mumbling
about judgment on America the free.

The price of bread’s ten bucks a pound
Terrorists attack and there’s the sound
of the falling of America the free.

but in all these things we conquer
in all these things we overcome.
There’s no way to stop the promises
The resurrection’s gonna come
So no matter what may follow
No matter what the lies
They can never separate us
from the love of God in Christ.

Conservatives or Liberals (take your choice)
Make it into office and silence your voice
Politicians wreck America the free.

Banks foreclose on the American Dream,
Hardship, persecution, peril and famine
they aught not happen in America the free.

but in all these things we conquer
in all these things we overcome.
There’s no way to stop the promises
The resurrection’s gonna come
So no matter what may follow
No matter what the lies
They can never separate us
from the love of God in Christ.

Morality becomes a crash and burn
Wickedness confronts us on every turn
Bound to happen in America the free.

If the police bang down our doors and say
That it’s not right for us to pray
They don’t allow that in America the free

Then in all these things we’ll conquer
in all these things we’ll overcome.
There’s no way to stop the promises
The resurrection’s gonna come
So no matter what may follow
No matter what the lies
They can never separate us
from the love of God in Christ.
