We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
For all Thou has given.
For all Thou has withheld.
For all Thou hast withdrawn.
For all Thou hast permitted.
For all Thou hast prevented.
For all Thou hast forgiven me.
For all Thou hast prepared for me.
For the death Thou hast chosen for me.
For the place Thou art keeping for me in heaven.
For having created me to love Thee for eternity.
Deo Gratias, Deo Gratias, Deo Gratias
