Heal Our Land (If My people will humble themselves)

This song of petition for healing  was written by American music producer, arranger, engineer, and conductor and founding producer of Integrity Music and the Hosanna Music series, Tom and Robin Brooks. It was first published in 1988 by Integrity's Hosanna! Music.

The words are based on 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." - King James Version (KJV)

In 2001, the song was released by Filipino Roman Catholic pop/gospel singer, Jamie Rivera, and became popular in various countries in Asia.   Some sources (incorrectly) credit it to Rivera.   It was also recorded and widely shared in response to the 2019/2020 Covid-19 pandemic.

It is set to an unnamed tune, also by the Brooks. This has a 4/4 time signature. In the key of Ab, the first few notes are CD E_ DC C_ A, (GFG)

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
1 If My people will humble themselves
Humble themselves and pray.
If they seek My face and humble themselves
And turn from their wicked ways,
I will hear from heaven
And forgive their sin
I will hear from heaven
And heal their land.

Chorus
Lord heal our land
Father heal our land
Hear our cry
And turn our nation back to You.
Lord heal our land
Hear us O Lord and heal our land,
Forgive our sin
And heal our broken land.

2 Lord we bow our knee we humble ourselves
Humble ourselves and pray.
Lord we seek Your face
We humble ourselves
And turn from our wicked ways.
Father in Your mercy forgive our sin
Father in Your mercy come heal our land.
