~Spiritual Sunday~Freedom~

Today we celebrate Spiritual Sunday with our hostesses Charlotte and Ginger. I hope you will visit them...they have many participants that want to share inspiring and encouraging words for you today.

I would like to share this wonderful video with you. A few weeks ago, I posted several quotes made by our former president Ronald Reagan, and I included a link to this video, but I didn't know how to actually embed it in the post. I don't know if anyone saw it or not, but I believe it has a powerful message, so I'm posting it again today. Listen to the words carefully. The lyrics are under the video.

"Let Freedom Ring" by the Bill Gaither Vocal Band

Deep within, the heart has always known that there was freedom

Somehow breathed into the very soul alive

The prisoner, the powerless, the saved have always known it

There is something that keeps reaching for the sky

Even life begins because a baby fights for freedom

And songs we love to sing have freedom's theme

Some have walked through fire and flood to find a place of freedom

And some faced hell itself for freedom's dream

Let freedom ring wherever minds know what it means to be in chains

Let freedom ring wherever hearts know pain

Let freedom echo through the lonely streets where prisons have no key

We can be free and we can sing --- let freedom ring

God built freedom into every fiber of creation

And He meant for us to all be free and whole

When my Lord bought freedom with the blood of His redemption

His cross stamped pardon on my very soul

I'll sing it out with every breath, I'll let the whole world hear it

This hallelujah anthem of the free

That iron bars and heavy chains can never hold us captive

The Son has made us free and free indeed

Let freedom ring down through the ages from a hill called Calvary

Let freedom ring wherever hearts know pain

Let freedom echo through the lonely streets where prisons have no key

You can be free and you can sing let freedom ring

Let freedom echo through the lonely streets where prisons have no key

You can be free and you can sing let freedom ring

You can be free and you can sing --- let freedom ring --- let freedom ring

God bless you, and God bless America, land that I love.

  7. Oh, Mary. My heart is so full this morning, as my eyes well and overflow also. My heart is full with blessings of freedom and liberty. None of us will ever really know how good we have it.
    "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." John 8:32
    I hear something ring in that verse, could it be 'freedom'? ;-)

    Oh my....Thank you so much,

  8. Oops, And what an absolutely beautiful and appropriate song! I love the Gaithers.

  9. Thanks for your visit to Family Fountain and your comments.

    This was a great song. Thanks for posting.

  10. These lyrics are so powerful! And they are sung so beautifully. Here's the line that jumped out at me: Even life begins because a baby fights for freedom. Thank you for inspiring me.

  11. Thank you for sharing this beautiful video. It is so appropriate right now. I love the Gaithers.

  12. My we hold tight to our freedom that is being threatened on so many sides.

  13. Yup, the greatest freedom is freedom to walk in God--deliverance from the slavery to sin. Amen

    My spiritual sundays post is here:


  14. Love the Gaithers. Thank you for sharing and have a lovely week, Mary.


  15. Yes! Land that I love, too. Under God.

  16. The Gaithers can really touch your heart with their beautiful voices. The words of this song are so amazing.


  17. Mary, I am so glad that you came over. It lead me back over here and this video and it's amazing words was such a blessing to me.
    My sister, brother-in-law, and niece just finished singing with a back up choir for The Gaither's on some recording they just did. Not sure about all the details, but I will post about it when I have them.

  18. Well the last time I check on comments on my soap box post there were only 3. Now there are more. My hubby sent it to me. Not sure where he heard about it. And would be interested to know if they do actually show it in the schools. We home school so I will have to ask around. Did some reading on the internet about it. Pros and Cons. If one doesn't see the harm all I can say it they don't know American's history. The president is OUR servant not the other way around...those who have ears let them hear...

  19. Hi,
    Amen, Let freedom ring and may it always ring across our land!Have a blessed week.8-)

  20. I am glad you found a path up my walk today. Hope you come often.
    Lynn is a sweetie, isn't she? And yellow, yes I do look forward to next week when you join the sunshine!

  21. Hi Mary, I am behind on my blog reading. I just got back last night from our St. Louis weekend. Loved your last post with your miniature tea set and that beautiful rose plate! That was gorgeous! Have a wonderful week!~Hugs,Patti
