Celebrating the Author of Liberty

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on July 3, 2008

 and the land and country inspired by His example of liberty and choice:

My country, ’tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims’ pride,
From every mountainside Let freedom ring!
My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture thrills,
Like that above.  
Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees Sweet freedom’s song;
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break,
The sound prolong.
Our father’s God to Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright,
With freedom’s holy light,
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God our King.

God IS the Great Author of Liberty; Choice – that is FREEDOM!  THANK YOU GOD!

Thank you to those who have served and strive to keep us free!

Happy Birthday to our Great Land, Our Great Country and forever may it be FREE!

    Hmm, I wonder why everyone has such a hard time understanding why we need to be ‘back’ for 4th of July?
