Hymn for the Week


My country, 'tis of thee, Sweet land of liberty, Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died, Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From every mountain-side Let freedom ring!

My native country, thee, Land of the noble free, Thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills, Thy woods and templed hills.
My heart with rapture thrills Like that above.

Let music swell the breeze And ring from all the trees Sweet freedom's song;
Let mortal tongues awake; Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break, The sound prolong.

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!

Hymn for the Week


Oh say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof thru the night that our flag was still there.
Oh say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen thru the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fifully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines on the stream;
'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh, long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Oh, thus be it ever, when free men shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then 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 free and the home of the brave!

Hymn for the Week


I will not doubt, I will not fear;
God's love and strength are always near.

His Spirit guides; his love assures
That fear departs when faith endures.

Scripture for the Week

Mosiah 2:23-24. For people who think that their life is their own; you know who I mean. The ones that say things like, "It's my life so stop trying to tell me what to do. I can do whatever I want." I wish they would read these verses; because it isn't their life. They were bought with a price. And that price was Christ's blood, where He atoned for your sins and mine.
