Salutation #134

(The Republic!)

our Nation is the vessel
through which we strive
to journey in peace together
from hope to hope,
strength to strength,
and truth to truth
across vast oceans of time
from generation to generation
toward a destiny for all
and one worthy of all,
even unto the golden shores
of God and His Eternity;
our one, true Country!

Flag and Anthem
are its wind and sail,
the Constitution its helm,
the President its anchor,
and we, the people,
as citizens to each other,
its faithful crew.

What then
you may ask,
is the name of this
proud and glorious endeavor -
this speedy, sturdy, tall ship?

It is called -
the Republic!
