John Hancock: Men For Our God and the Cities of Our God

LIBERTY LETTERS, JOHN HANCOCK

Let us play the man for our GOD, and for the cities of our GOD…By a faithful discharge of our duty to our country, let us joyfully leave her important concerns in the hands of HIM who raiseth up and putteth down empires and kingdoms of the world as HE pleases.
