Happy July 4th!
Yesterday in church we sang Hymn 83 in the Christian Science Hymnal and I was struck with the appropriateness of it for this holiday. Let’s cherish the freedom of all of God’s children today in every way, and not only those special privileges we exercise as fortunate citizens of the Unites States!
God made all His creatures free;
Life itself is liberty;
God ordained no other bands
Than united hearts and hands.
One in fellowship of Mind,
We our bliss and glory find
In that endless happy whole,
Where our God is Life and Soul.
So shall all our slavery cease,
All God’s children dwell in peace,
And the newborn earth record
Love, and Love alone, is Lord.
