In 1956, President Eisenhower made “In God We (Still) Trust” America’s official motto.
A nation founded on prayer
Shines a light made bright to share
It carries a message in its strong beams
It is God who makes us free for our dreams

United States Congress
March 27,1854, a report from Mr. Meacham of the House Committee
“At the time of the adoption of the Constitution and the amendments, the universal sentiment was that Christianity should be encouraged, not any one sect [denomination]. Any attempt to level and discard all religion would have been viewed with universal indignation. The object was not to substitute Judaism or Mohammedanism, of infidelity [Atheism], but to prevent rivalry among the [Christian] sects to the exclusion of others.
It [Christianity] must be considered as the foundation on which the whole structure rests. Laws will not have permanence or power without the sanction of religious sentiment, — without a firm belief that there is a Power above us that will reward our virtues and punish our vices.
In this age there can be no substitute for Christianity: that, in its general principles, is the great conservative element on which we must rely for the purity and permanence of free institutions. That was the religion of the founders of the republic, and they expected it to remain the religion of their descendants. There is a great and very prevalent error on this subject in the opinion that those who organized this Government did not legislate on religion.”

With a smile on my face
A warm prayer in my heart
And my pillow in embrace
A dream began to start

The randomness of sleep
Displayed what’s in my head
As REM’s went deep
I saw what I just read

The tree of life, so green
Had fruit on every leaf
The whitest ever seen
I was thrilled beyond belief

I held one in my hand
Fragrance filled the air
Oh, the taste was grand
So pure, I sought to share

I searched far a wide
So hard,  that I woke up
My dream I will not hide
For what I tasted was love
