To the Work

Why are so many patriotic Americans still underwhelmed and unwowed by the media's Obama-frenzy? Very simply, the fierce divide over vital issues did not dissipate the day after the election. As Mike Huckabee stated on his HuckPac Blog, the Obama election essentially means that the nation must now face five fronts in the LibProg assault on our constitutional liberties:

1. Goodbye, Second Amendment rights.

2. Goodbye, protection for the unborn.

3. Goodbye, diligence against state sponsored terrorism from rogue governments like Iran, North Korea, and others.

4. Goodbye, parental rights as a fundamental right to not be supplanted by the government.

5. Goodbye, holding traditional marriage as one man, one woman for life.

So, while others celebrate, the vigilant patriot is necessarily working at the grassroots level to inform and reform in every arena and at every turn.

To the work! To the work! We are servants of God;
Let us follow the path that our Master has trod;
With the balm of His counsel our strength to renew,
Let us do with our might what our hands find to do.

Toiling on, toiling on,
Toiling on, toiling on,
Let us hope and trust,
Let us watch and pray,
And labor till the Master comes.

To the work! To the work! Let the hungry be fed;
To the fountain of life let the weary be led;
In the cross and its banner our glory shall be,
While we herald the tidings, “Salvation is free!”

To the work! To the work! There is labor for all;
For the kingdom of darkness and error shall fall;
And the love of our Father exalted shall be,
In the loud swelling chorus, “Salvation is free!”

To the work! To the work! In the strength of the Lord,
And a robe and a crown shall our labor reward,
When the home of the faithful our dwelling shall be,
And we shout with the ransomed, “Salvation is free!”
