Freedom's Never Free

{Edited from the archives.}

Today is Remembrance Day... I will remember... lest we forget... that freedom's never free! The song Freedom's Never Free by Phillips, Craig and Dean says it very well... freedom, both here on earth and for eternity, is never free! I will forever be grateful.

Please pause the Playlist on the sidebar of this blog as you watch the video.

Standing on a hillside | Where the river meets the sea | White crosses without number | Line the fields of peace | And each one a silent witness | Staring back at me | Every cross a story | Of another place in time | Where young men thought it worthy | To give their life for mine | And for the sake of honor | Left their dreams behind | And for the price they paid | I'm forever in their debt | Their memory will not die | 'Cause I will not forget
I will stand and hold my head up high | I will dedicate my life | To the glory of the ones who had to die | I will live, live what I believe | If for no one else but me | To remember | That freedom's never free
On another hillside | Outside the city gates | The battle lines were drawn | As soldiers took their place | The Father watched in silence | As a cross was raised | With freedom drawing closer | He took His final breath | He drank our cup of guilt | And took the sting from death | Heaven's Finest Soldier | clothed in human flesh | And for the price He paid | I'm forever in His debt | The cross will never die | 'Cause I will not forget
I will stand and hold my head up high | I will dedicate my life | To the glory of the One who had to die | I will live, live what I believe | If for no one else but me | To remember | Freedom's Never Free
I will walk free | I will stay free | I will live free | I will die free!
To remember is to work for peace." ~ Quote from MCC Ontario Remembrance Day button.

Today, pause to remember... LEST WE FORGET!

Unwrapping more of His love in this world.
Act justly.  Love mercy.  Walk humbly with God!
