Lift every voice and sing
Till earth and heaven ring,
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty;
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the listening skies,
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us,
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us,
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun
Let us march on till victory is won.
Stony the road we trod,
Bitter the chastening rod,
Felt in the days when hope unborn had died;
Yet with a steady beat,
Have not our weary feet
Come to the place for which our fathers sighed?
We have come over a way that with tears has been watered,
We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered,
Out from the gloomy past,
Till now we stand at last
Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast.
God of our weary years,
God of our silent tears,
Thou who has brought us thus far on the way;
Thou who has by Thy might
Led us into the light,
Keep us forever in the path, we pray.
Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee,
Lest, our hearts drunk with the wine of the world, we forget Thee;
Shadowed beneath Thy hand, May we forever stand.
True to our God, True to our native land.

God’s Grace and MercyJoin BABC Community Prayer VigilPray for one of these everyday
No one in the
world is perfect
until you fall
in love with
That it's the
small things that
that make life
That sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand.
That the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an old person
That having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.
That it is best to give advice in only two circumstances;
when it is requested and when you’ve taken your own advice.
That life is tough,
but I'm tougher.
That opportunities are never lost;
someone will take the ones you miss.
That when you plan revenge against someone, you are only letting that person continue to hurt you.
That no matter how serious your life requires you to be, everyone needs friends to act silly with.
That everyone deserves to be appreciated and loved.
That I can't choose how I feel, but I can choose what I do about it.
That the Lord didn't do it all in one day. What makes me think I can?
That when you're in love, it shows.
That I can always pray for someone when I don't have the strength to help him in some other way.
That the easiest way for me to grow as a person is to spend time and listen to people smarter than I am.
That being kind is more important than being right.
That just one person saying to me, "You've made my day!" actually makes my day.
That “Prejudice” is the child of Mr. and Mrs. Ignorant.
