“God bless our native land, Firm may she ever stand
Through storm and night: When the wild tempests rave,
Ruler of wind and wave, Do Thou our country save
By Thy great might.”
Then they led the congregation in the singing of “My Country ‘Tis of Thee”
which ends with these words:
“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!”
What a precious heritage we have and one worth protecting. May we make sure our nation always honors God for indeed blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.
Now our singers will take a much deserved break. The next time they will sing is on September 13th when our current choir members as well as past choir members plus their children and grandchildren combine their talents to bring us,
“My Lord” on Grandparents’ Day.
It is also a good time to invite new singers to join us in our choral activities.
Now is the time to spread the word about this musical event and bring someone
to our Wed. rehearsal on Sept. 9!
Did you notice that we already have a new singer in our choir? We are happy to have Jeanine Thayer now singing in our group. She sang with us on July 5th and you’ll see her singing with us again on Grandparents’ Day. WELCOME JEANINE!! WE’RE GLAD YOU’RE WITH US!!!
