To Your Shame

THANK YOU to all the veterans who are serving, have served or will serve this great country! We love and pray for you.

To Your Shame

There are fifty stars and thirteen stripes
Sprinkled ‘cross this banner proud.
That boasts of colors; red, white and blue,
Waving high amongst the clouds.

For over two hundred twenty years
This banner’s proudly waved.
All eyes who look upon her….know
She’s the symbol of the USA!

She gently flaps across spacious skies
And majestic purple mountains.
She’s brandished through times of peace and war
Above pretty, tranquil fountains.

She’s somberly draped across caskets many
Of those who’ve fought and died.
To protect and preserve our many freedoms
And we honor them with pride.

She’s been spitefully cursed at and burned
But still she waves today.
She sings the sweet song of great liberty!
That some would take away.

She’s displayed in countries far and wide
Carried by sons and daughters.
She flaps in the winds of ocean tides,
And rivers, streams and waters.

O America, Blessed America!
How God has graced thy land!
With fruited plains and amber grains
And mercy from His mighty hand.

O America, Blessed America!
Sweet land of brotherhood…..
May you never forsake your heritage
For hay, stubble and wood!

Your forefathers feared the Almighty God
And built this nation on His name.
But when you abandon His commandments
You will do it…..to your shame.

I remember how proud I was when I first put on the uniform for my country. I am still proud of those who serve, but my heart is heavy for the direction our country is headed. Thank you to our present and past Armed Forces. We love you.
