I love this hymn(no author)

HOW FIRM A FOUNDATION, you saints of the Lord,

Is laid for your faith in his excellent Word!

What more can he say than to you he has said,

You, who unto Jesus for refuge have fled?

In every condition, in sickness, in health;

In poverty’s vale, or abounding in wealth;

At home and abroad, on the land, on the sea,


—————————————— Psalm 112

Happy the man who fears the Lord, who takes delight in all his commands. His sons will be powerful on earth; the children of the upright are blessed.

Riches and wealth are in his house; his justice stands firm for ever. HE IS A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS FOR THE UPRIGHT: HE IS GENEROUS, MERCIFUL AND JUST.

THE GOOD MAN TAKES PITY AND LENDS, he conducts his affairs with honor.  The just man will never waver: he will be remembered for ever.

He has no fear of evil news; with a firm heart he trusts in the Lord. With a steadfast heart he will not fear; he will see the downfall of his foes.

Open-handed, he gives to the poor; his justice stands firm for ever. His head will be raised in glory.


If everyone actually went by these lines, there would be no corruption in Washington, no mistreating of the poor and helpless, no using other people to achieve ones own goals and no using others tax money to become rich.

I would say:  BUILD THE CHURCH, SAVE THE COUNTRY. If every Christian and other morally good person actually stood by what they believe and stood by those beliefs, this Country would be changed in a month or two.

Glory Be to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit……


To which of the angels did God ever say: “You are my son; this day I have begotten you”? (Heb 1:5)

Do not fear those, before whom you are now afraid; do not fear them, says the Lord, for I am with you to save you, to rescue you from their power. (cf. Jer 42:11)
“Fear is one of the great tactics by which evil tries to prevent the good from speaking out or acting with integrity according to their Christian commitment. It was a constant threat to the early Christians, who staunchly resisted. On the day before Pentecost, we remember especially that Mary strengthened the early Christian community , as she strengthens us today.” Magnificat
