Happy Birthday, America!!!! (2015)
Every day, but especially the 4th of July, is good day to remember
Who has provided us with Life, Liberty, & the Pursuit of Happiness
(see Declaration of Independence):
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD;
and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
The LORD looks from heaven;
he beholds all the sons of men.
From the place of his habitation he looks upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
He fashions their hearts alike; he considers all their works.
There is no king saved by the multitude of an host:
a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.
An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.
Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him,
upon them that hope in his mercy;
To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
Our soul waits for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.
For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.
Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.
