Happy fourth to all. As we celebrate our independence as a nation let us also declare our independence from the world and its thinking. May we instead today declare ourselves dependent on God and commit anew to his vision of world peace for all.

Mine Eyes Have Seen
Brother Lawrence Damien Cos
Mine eyes have seen the glory of Godâ€™s coming reign of peace,
He is calling all the nations to embrace a new dawn of peace,
To lay down all their weapons and to live in unity,
By raising up a banner for peace.
I have seen many people embrace this dream of peace,
Calling for an end to violence and for a new day to be
Inviting all people to be a part of Godâ€™s inclusive family,
Never choosing war, but only victory and peace.
God is sending forth His message and will never call retreat
Calling Â for all Christians to embrace and love unconditionally,
ToÂ go forth together Â and proclaim the year of jubilee,
The chains areÂ now broken and prisoners set free
Many years ago Christ was born across the sea
With a power within Him Â that can transform you and me
Let us now in that power go and set our world free
Transforming it bringing Godâ€™s eternal reign of peace.
