~ Where the Sun Will Never Set on Our liberty ~
They Called it America - by Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver
God built him a continent of glory, and filled it with treasures untold. He studded it with sweet-flowing fountains, and traced it with long-winding streams. He carpeted it with soft-rolling prairies and columned it with thundering mountains. He graced it with deep-shadowed forests, and filled them with song.
Then he called unto a thousand peoples, and summoned the bravest among them. They came from the ends of the earth, each bearing a gift and a hope.
And out of the bounty of earth, and the labor of men: out of the memory of ages, and the hopes of the world, God fashioned a nation in love, and blessed it with purpose sublime.
And they called it America.
