Let the mountains rejoice…

Let the mountains rejoice,

let them cry out, Glory to the One

who set us upon

the earth with all like wondrous kind.

Lift up His name, let Glory reign,

and bless all who honor Him with voice,

and with their promised inheritance gain

their eternal place, like an eternal flame

that burns forever, always bright

and with the Father, all blessings claimed.

Today is Independence Day in the U.S. If you are an American and have sung and know the words to the song, America the Beautiful, then you might remember the phrase that goes like this, “purple mountains majesties.” I have used this photo for today’s post to honor our national holiday. Happy birthday, America, and may it always be one that is the land of the free, and the brave, and above all, one that honors its creator, Father God. Happy 4th of July to all Americans, today.  JEJ
