A New Nation, A New Land 2010

(A Presidnet’s Creed
Inspired from the Bible)

For, behold You created a new nation, a new land
And the old shall be forgotten nor
shall be remembered

I believe the spirit of the Lord is upon me
To preach this good tidings unto you, my people
Rejoice for He hath sent me,
To bind up the broken hearted,
To vanish oppression and injustice,
To proclaim liberty to the captive of corruption,
To comfort all that mourn and all that suffer

For, behold this new nation and new land
shall be clothed with the garment of praise
For the spirit of patriotism that they might be called
Trees of righteousness, there shall be great
rejoicing for there shall be years of long lasting
peace, justice and prosperity
And her people a joy

The voice of weeping shall be heard no more nor
the voice of the poor crying, they shall not
labor in vain nor bring forth misery and death,
for they are the seed of this great land in the East
and their offsprings with them, and that they shall be known
among the gentiles of the world and acknowledge them
all for they are the children of God

This new nation and new land shall greatly rejoice in the Lord
for He hath clothed his people with vestment of salvation,
He hath covered them with the robe of righteousness.
He hath decketh this new nation and new land with
green ornaments and jewels and shall remain forever
I believe the spirit of the Lord God is upon us all

Mabuhay, Filipinas!

    We have to be convinced that salvation comes through faith. Paul made this plain by saying, 'For by grace are ye saved, through faith: and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God' (Ephesians 2: 8) . Wonderful reflective poem, excellent message...God bless.

    Had it been …if it were…like Utopian…
    Will Lord make all great…a very questionable point …as poet’s and devotees are optimistic…let us echo Lord’s glory with you Sir…
