In the 1880 Song
In the first verse, it speaks of how to carry the sword, carry the cross and values soaked in faith. How rich these verses are in the truth of God, carrying our sword “word of God”, carrying the cross “our salvation” and of course our values soaked with our faith “our belief and promises of God”.
In the second verse, under the “Eye of God”, the Canadian grows in hope ....”wow”.
“Blessed was his cradle. Heaven holds his destiny. Always guided by its light” How rich a heritage we have been given from our Heavenly Father.
In the third verse, patron, precursor of the true God, enemy of tyranny, full of loyalty. This sounds just like our God, so amazing.
In the fourth verse, scared love of throne and altar, under the yoke of the faith, For Christ and the King.....What more can you say.
So I ask this week that we take time to pray into these verses, and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you into a new understanding of how precious this country truly is and to pray for the government leaders.
