Psalms 44:1-8

O God, we have heard with our ears, Our fathers have told us The work that You did in their days, In the days of old.1

You with Your own hand drove out the nations; Then You planted them; You afflicted the peoples, Then You spread them abroad.2

For by their own sword they did not possess the land, And their own arm did not save them, But Your right hand and Your arm and the light of Your presence, For You favored them.3

You are my King, O God; Command victories for Jacob.4

Through You we will push back our adversaries; Through Your name we will trample down those who rise up against us.5

For I will not trust in my bow, Nor will my sword save me.6

But You have saved us from our adversaries, And You have put to shame those who hate us.7

In God we have boasted all day long, And we will give thanks to Your name forever. Selah.8

On July 4, 1837, in a speech celebrating the 61st Anniversary of the signing of the Decaration, John Quincy Adams proclaimed to the inhabitants of the Town of Newburyport:

“Why is it that, next to the birthday of the Savior of the World, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day. Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior? That if forms a leading event in the Progress of the Gospel dispensation?

Is it not the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission upon earth?

That it laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity and gave to the world the first irrevocable pledge of the fulfillment of the prophecies announced directly from Heaven at the birth of the Saviour and predicted by the greatest of the Hebrew prophets 600 years before.”

John Quincy Adams (1767-1848), was the 6th President of the US, son of John Adams, the 2nd President.  He revealed his convictions and philosophy in the following quotations:

“The first and almost the only Book deserving of universal attention is the Bible.”

“I speak as a man of the world to men of the world; and I say to you, Search the Scriptures! The Bible is the book of all others, to be read at all ages, and in all conditions of human life; not to be read once or twice or thrice through,, and then laid aside, but to be read in small portions of one or two chapters every day, and never to be intermitted, unless by some overruling necessity.”

“In what light soever we regard the Bible,, whether with reference to revelation,, to history,, or to maorality,, it is an ivaluable and inexhaustible mine of knowledge and virtue.”

“It is no slight testimonial, both to the merit and worth of Christianity, that in all ages since its promulgation the great mass of those who have risen to eminence by their profound wisdom and integrity have recognized and reverenced Jesus of Nazareth as the Son of the living God.”

“Posterity – you will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom.  I hope you will make good use of it.”

“… although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools… Who exchanged the truth of God for the lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever.

Abigal Adams (1744-1818), wife of john Adams, 2nd President of the USA, and mother of the 6th President, John Quincy Adams.  On November 15, 1775 she wrote:

“A patriot without religion in my estimation is as great a paradox as an honest Man without the fear of God.  Is it possible that he whom no moral obligations bind, can have any real Good Will towards Men?  Can he be a patriot who, by an openly vicious conduct, is undermining the very bonds of Society?…The Scriptures tell us “righteousness exalteth a Nation.”

“Here my cry, O God; attend to my prayer.  From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.  For You have been a shelter for me, a strong tower from the enemy.  I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings.” – Psalms 61:1-8
