‘Protect Us By Thy Might, Great God Our King’

We have to thank Phoebe for requesting this: My Country ‘Tis of Thee.

And I had to hunt around for a rendition which included all the verses–especially the last, and most important, one.

“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!”

O Lord, how we need your protection now! We are so dangerously near to losing our liberties. Defend us, O God! Avenge the crimes committed against our country by wicked and ungodly persons, many of whom have crept into high public office. Bring us to repentance, Lord: bring us, like the Prodigal Son, back to our senses. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  1. Beautiful. Hard to believe we no longer celebrate the natural and man-made glories of America, not the least of which were our energy and freedom — and our willingness to thank God for it all.
