When our freedoms are challenged,
and our faith is denied,
When life hangs in the balance, equality decried,
Our solemn call to action, necessary and good,
May be called into question, even misunderstood,
Freedom from oppression, on which our country was built,
Our forefathers lessons, a nations pride now distilled,
Building society, where freedom can ring,
I say with great piety, its a Christian thing!
We always acknowledge, those with different views,
Afford them the privilege, and the freedom to choose,
But we built this great land, in this peculiar way,
To give freedom to man, and what he has to say.
But let us not forget, the reasons for these freedoms,
To each serve our Lord best, and unite in these seasons,
For it is love of our neighbors, of which we now sing,
Our response to our Savior, itís a Christian thing!
America the beautiful, of which I am proud,
Patriotic and dutiful, we answer out loud,
Donít tread on us, or our God given rights,
Donít give us causes, for which we will fight.
Now as a nation, we will turn the other cheek,
For weíre taught patience, and when to be meek,
But donít doubt for a moment, our resolve or the power of our
As we give you time to foment, it's simply a Christian thing.

A string of poetic tales, about my life, my love
and, my Lord...
Observations in scales, of mortal plight, once
we chance, accord...
Imagination pales, and yet just might, share a
glance, of more...
Propping powerful sails, from my short life,
