GOD of our fathers, known of old,
Lord of our far-flung battle line,
Beneath whose awful hand we hold
Dominion over palm and pine
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget-lest we forget!

The tumult and the shouting dies;
The Captains and the Kings depart;
Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice,
An humble and a contrite heart.
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget—lest we forget!

Far-called our navies melt away;
On dune and headland sinks the fire;
Lo, all our pomp of yesterday
Is one with Nineveh and Tyre!
Judge of the Nations, spare us yet,
Lest we forget—lest we forget!

If, drunk with sight of power, we loose
Wild tongues that have not Thee in awe,
Such boastings as the Gentiles use,

Or lesser breeds without the Law
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget—lest we forget!

For heathen heart that puts her trust
In reeking tube and iron shard
All valiant dust that builds on dust,
And guarding calls not Thee to guard.
For frantic boast and foolish word,
Thy Mercy on Thy People, Lord!

Counter Attack

Well, I just read a really good book called Outside Hollywood, by Mr. Issac Botkin.

It's an very interesting book about what the mentality of Christian Filmmakers ought to be, challenging us to make sure our theological facts are straight before even thinking about making a movie.

He also shows what a bunch of narcissistic Marxist blow-hards, Hollywood actors, writers, and producers are.

Another important point he makes is not to sell to Hollywood, they might give you money for a good script, but they will tweak it for sure if it has any Christian value in it. He has a quote in the book from a well known Hollywood actor who said that in Hollywood, "They'll give you $40,000 for a kiss but only a dime for your soul."

I highly recomend this book, even if you are not interested in filmaking.

Semper Fi.
