"Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD: and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance." Psalm 33;12

O say, can you see, by the dawn's early light, What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming, Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thru the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming? And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof thru the night that our flag was still there. O say, does that star-spangled banner  yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

O thus be it ever, when free men shall stand Between their loved homes and the war's desolation! Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserved us a nation! Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just; And this be our motto: "In God is our trust!" And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

~Francis Scott Key 1779-1843

"Sir, my greatest concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right." ~Abraham Lincoln

"America The Beautiful"

"O beautiful for patriot dream That sees, beyond the years, Thine alabaster cities gleam - Undimmed by human tears! America! America! God shed His grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea."

"We Weep For You, America"

We weep for you, America,
We weep for you, our land,
We weep for you, America,
You were once strong in God's
almighty hand.
You left the God of our 
You've turned from the Word of
the Lord,
We weep for you, America,
For the Truth  that you have

"We Pray For You, America'

We pray for you, America,
We pray for you, our land,
We pray for you, America, 
That you stay under God's 
almighty hand.

We pray for a moving revival,
To draw us to God from our sin,
We pray for you, America,
For a change that's from within.
