Happy Fourth!

On this 150th anniversary of Gettysburg, this incredible hymn that was written during the Civil War seems even more appropriate for this 4th of July, especially this verse:
He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment seat;
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet;
Our God is marching on.
He IS marching on, even when we may not see Him. May our souls be swift to answer Him!

For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. (2 Chronicles 16:9)

Blessings to you on this Fourth of July!
