We sang some patriotic songs Sunday morning at Satsuma First. And one in particular I’d like to share with you leading to our Fourth of July – Independence Day. Do you know that America has an Independence Day because She was once by choice dependent upon GOD?
Look closely at one of the stanzas of America (My Country ‘Tis of Thee). Just the title of the song says My Country Is because of You O LORD GOD. Here’s the lyric:
Our fathers’ God to Thee,
Author of Liberty,
To thee we sing,
Long may our land be bright
With Freedom’s holy light,
Protect us by thy might
Great God, our King.
To whom are we singing in this Patriotic Hymn?
The GOD of our Fathers.
And who is this GOD of our Fathers?
He is the AUTHOR of Liberty.
Oh yes indeed He is!!
And for what were our forefathers asking?
That for long long years this land be filled with the brightness of His glory which would manifest in holy freedom for we the people.
And how was this going to happen?
When He our GOD and our KING protected us with HIS might!
Oh what song!! Oh what a truth! For our Founders believed it and lived it! When you and your children are told a different history, DO NOT believe it – sing the song!
Click HERE to be linked to a webpage giving you all the lyrics. If our Forefathers’ GOD is your GOD and KING, your heart will swell with holy pride as you read. Please note the hymn was written by Rev. Samuel F. Smith – 1832.

Isaiah 61:1-3 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
61 “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the Lord hath anointed Me to preach good tidings unto the meek. He hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound,
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn,
3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He might be glorified.”
The ONE anointed here is none other than the LORD JESUS CHRIST and this Nation was birthed to proclaim Him!
LET FREEDOM RING!
ABBA, thank You and forgive us I pray. Revive us that YOUR FREEDOM ring in this Nation again.
