Good Words for Today: July 4

post date: July 4, 2020


In 1876 Daniel Roberts wrote a hymn to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. It became popular and soon was sung across America. "God of Our Fathers" remains one of the best statements of the spirit that animated the men who declared their independence from England 244 years ago.


Here are the words to the second verse:
"Thy Love divine hath led us in the past.
In this free land by thee our lot is cast.
Be thou our ruler, guardian, guide, and stay.
Thy Word Our Law, thy Paths our chosen ways."
May that prayer come true in our day!
