Please continue to pray without ceasing for
our President, all leaders and others who are taking an active roll
in the planning and executing of the world's defense against terrorism
and all evil doers who manifest their hatred by and through terror.
Please pray for the protection of all those who are innocent bystanders
in this international drama who are bearing unjust retaliation that
is due only to the guilty.
to listen as I sing the 4th verse of our National Anthem. The words,
which have always been relevent to all generations are especially so
now to me. As I sang I thought of all the hopes and dreams that came
to an end that day, yet, as God would have it, have only given birth
to more. The memories of the lives that were sacrificed that day are
now the fertile ground on which a revival of love and new unity among
and between citizens is being seen and experienced within our borders
and without. I hope my small gift of music lifts our hearts and that
it will remind and teach people that God is still in charge...He is
just...He inspires...He preserves us...His love is unconditional.
God Bless America!
The National Anthem of the United States
by Francis Scott Key
Oh, 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!
