It is disgusting

wasted years
It’s funny how the feds can send a Navy man to prison for some nuclear sub pics, or a marine for doing his job and killing the enemy, or send a small-time trailer park crack dealer away for 40 yrs because he won’t snitch on the real kingpin (and they fail to identify the kingpin because they’re lazy, which is why they want people to snitch in the first place).. but they never dare arrest DC elites who, year after year, commit crimes right in front of the American people. No, it’s not funny. It’s disgusting.

August 3: Holy, Holy, Holy!

HOLY, HOLY, HOLY!

 

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;

Holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty!

God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

 

Holy, holy, holy! all the saints adore Thee,

Casting down their golden crown around

the glassy sea;

Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,

Which wert and art, and evermore shall be.

 

Holy, holy, holy! though the darkness hide Thee,

Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see,

Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee,

Perfect in power, in love, and purity.

 

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

All Thy works shall praise Thy name, in earth,

and sky, and sea;

Holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty!

God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

 

− Reginald Heber
