O say, can you see, by the dawns early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilights last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, we were gallantly streaming,
And the rockets red glard, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave truth thro' the night that our flag was still there,
O say, does that Star-spangled banner yet wave,
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
O thus be it ever when free men shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation"
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'v rescued land
Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserved us a nation!
The conquer we must, when our cause it is just"
And this be our motto" "In God is our trust!"
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the gree and the home of the brave.
Francis Scott Key 1814
There are lots of words being tossed around about America being a "Christian" nation ~ a nation cannot be "christian", people are Christians, not things, but it was founded by Christian Men. Men who risked their lives, their families safety, their own personal "fortunes", for what they believed in.
Find some books about these Founding Fathers written before the 1950's. You will learn lots of stuff about our nation, the men behind the founding of the nation, and their FAITH. These are the facts that aren't in current history books!
America was founded on Christian principles, by mainly Christian Men who prayed and sought the Lords guidance before they made decisions!
(Just because many have re-written history to fit their views, doesn't mean the original history didn't happen! Their distorted view doesn't make it true!)
