An American verse [Sunday, Jul. 04, 2004, 11:31 am]
Right before my family leaves for a few days, I thought I'd put up a song here in honor of July 4th. This is the 4th verse of "The Star Spangled banner", our national anthem. Most people don't know that there are 4 verses to that song - we only sing #1. But I love verse 4 as much as I love verse 1, because I think it's very relevant to these times. So here it is:
"O thus be it ever when free men shall stand,
Can you imagine the complaining some people would do if we sang that verse nowadays? They like to say that this country wasn't founded on Biblical principles. If that's true, then why did we pick this to be our national anthem?
