Memorial Day 2009

God Bless Our Native Land
by
Frances E. W. Harper

God bless our native land,
Land of the newly free,
Oh may she ever stand
For truth and liberty.

God bless our native land,
Where sleep our kindred dead,
Let peace at thy command
Above their graves be shed.

God help our native land,
Bring surcease to her strife,
And shower from thy hand
A more abundant life.

God bless our native land,
Her homes and children bless,
Oh may she ever stand
For truth and righteousness.

Beautiful words....

I pray we all begin to bless our land more instead of wasting our words on what we all don't like about it.

We are blessed Nation...thank you for sharing!

Freedom of speach is one thing that is precious to Our Country BUT it is also something if not used properly can degrade Our Country....
I agree with Rebecca 100%. Bless Our Country.... Many people have died to protect it. Do not make their sacrifice be in vain!!
Love,
Marilyn

Martha, Your blog is looking so pretty! And I'm lovin' the chickies!
I like the way, on the round and chubby one, that you made the wing look like a little "pocket".
Blessings to you and to the USA.
