if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land”
2 Chronicles 7:14

SSS (1)
Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power 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, 1814

“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”

“Share in suffering as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.”
‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭2:3‬

“In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free;
[originally …let us die to make men free]
While God is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! While God is marching on!”

    Honrar a los que dieron su vida por la patria es un gesto muy honorable. Amar y respetar a la bandera de la patria es otro gesto que dice mucho de los habitantes de un país. Me agrada mucho todo lo que he leído. Gracias, amigos.
    Honor those who gave their lives for the fatherland is a very honorable gesture. Love and respect the flag of the motherland is another gesture that says a lot about the inhabitants of a country. I am very pleased everything I read. Thanks friends.
