“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
…taking the liberty to adjust some of the verses of The Navy Hymn with a few prayerful thoughts regarding our country on this Election Day…
Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bidd’st the mighty ocean deep
its own appointed limits keep,
O hear us when we cry to thee
to guide our nation to stay strong and free!
O Christ! Whose voice the waters heard
and hushed their raging at thy word,
Who walkedst on the foaming deep,
and calm amidst its rage didst sleep,
O hear us when we cry to thee,
to give us right leaders who stand for liberty!
Most Holy Spirit! Who didst brood
upon the chaos dark and rude,
and bid its angry tumult cease,
and give, for wild confusion, peace,
O hear our thanks to God as we sing.
You influence hearts to follow Christ the King!

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” spoken by Jesus in John 3:16-17 KJV
