LIBERTY OR DEATH

“Give me liberty or give me death!”

Meant every word with every breath.

.

Patrick Henry I would like to have known.

Recorded in history and not alone!

.

Proclamation of freedom, liberty bell,

Independence, self-rule, and governed well!

.

Free government but not anarchy!

Lawlessness in governing deliberately.

.

Second Continental Congress in 1776

Declared independence, learned some new tricks.

.

Keeping order!  Savages put down!

Liberty extending!  There will be no crown!

.

Over three hundred years ago the main thrust,

Liberty!  Like, “In God we trust!”

.

Washington, a totally God fearing man!

Accomplished only what God’s man can!

.

Land of freedom, so many folk claim!

Immigrants, “My Country,” in freedoms name!

.

So freedom in Christ we may also seek!

Everland, heaven, just for the meek.

.

Meek shall inherit what?  Forever life!

Heavenly Home!  Free from all sins strife.

.

A Continental Congress for all who come!

Home in heaven, if you truly seek one!

.

“Seek Me, you will find Me…”  Truly God’s Word!

No sweeter promise ever made!  That I have heard!

.
