Maybe it was because everyone was standing to sing or maybe it was because we were up front and all of the voices came from behind us. Or maybe it was because everyone realized what they were singing but the power was electrifying.
And when we sang the final verse (yes there is more than one) I was literally fighting back the tears.
This- this is what our country was founded on, why it was fought for- what it was fought for.
I truly believe this a heaven preserved land, persevered for us by our Father in Heaven, preserved to be a place of freedom founded on our trust in God.
And it terrifies me that this trust is being pushed out and lost more and more every single day. Will our country still be preserved for us if this trust is totally lost?
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
Happy birthday to a country that I am still fighting for.
