IN GOD WE STILL TRUST

This song was sung my Diamond Rio and it was never played on the radio or published b/c it was considered politically incorrect! here it is…its really beautiful..at least thats what i think!

In God We Still Trust
You place your hand on His bible, and when you swear to tell the truth.
His name is on our greatest monuments an’ all our money too.
An’ when we pledge allegiance, there’s no doubt where we stand:
There’s no separation, we’re one nation under Him.

In God, we still trust here in America,
He’s the one we turn to every time the going gets tough.
He is the source of all our strength, the one who watches over us.
Here in America, in God, we still trust.

Now there are those among us,
Who wanna push Him out.
And erase his name from everything,
This country’s all about.
From the schoolhouse to the courthouse,
They’re silencing His word,
An’ now it’s time for all believers,
To make our voices heard.

In God, we still trust here in America,
He’s the one we turn to every time the goin’ gets tough.
He is the source of all our strength, the one who watches over us.
Here in America, in God, we still trust.
Here in America, in God, we still trust.
Here in America,
Here in America, in God, we still trust.
Here in America, in God, we still trust.
Here in America

 

IN THE MOMENT

Ξ April 10th, 2007 | → 0 Comments | ∇ Eeyore's Corner |

In the moment when a whisper becomes a stirring…..
I think of our secrets.
You are my confidante.
In the moment when our laughter becomes abandon,
I think of our compatibility.
You are my friend.
In the moment when attraction becomes surrender,
I think of our passion.
You are my lover.
In the moment when a glimmer becomes radiance,
I think of our future.
You are my tomorrow.
In the moment when ascent becomes triumph,
I realize love transforms the ordinary-
& ours is an extraordinary love.
You…are my forever.
