2 Timothy 4:6-8

6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.

7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.


Words: Charles Wesley
Music: “Darwall’s 148th,” John Darwall

Rejoice, the Lord is King! Your Lord and King adore;
Mortals give thanks and sing, and triumph evermore;
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

Jesus, the Savior, reigns, the God of truth and love;
When He had purged our stains He took His seat above;
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

His kingdom cannot fail, He rules o’er earth and heaven,
The keys of death and hell are to our Jesus given;
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

He sits at God’s right hand till all His foes submit,
And bow to His command, and fall beneath His feet:
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

He all His foes shall quell, shall all our sins destroy,
And every bosom swell with pure seraphic joy;
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice,
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

Rejoice in glorious hope! Jesus the Judge shall come,
And take His servants up to their eternal home.
We soon shall hear th’archangel’s voice;
The trump of God shall sound, rejoice!



Let's see: Partially disabled veteran (nothing exciting except for me: I slipped on some loose rocks and snow on a mountain in Arizona - training exercise while on active duty with the Army - and slid a ways on my back, jamming rocks up next to my spine, causing nerve damage). Anglican Charismatic Evangelical lay minister who is currently teaching in an extension center for a Pentecostal Bible institute (long story - it comes from being a conservative Anglican living in the heretical Episcopal diocese of Missouri where the bishop thinks blessing homosexual relationships is okay.)

Very Married. My wife and I are both planning on staying that way.

Republican, NRA Life Member, strong proponent of right to carry, NRA Election Volunteer Coordinator for 6th (federal) congressional district. If you're in MO freepmail me ASAP as we are putting together teams for NRA type freeps.

Letter to the editor; published approx. 8/13/2004 after 8/5/2004 Whistle Stop by Kerry Campaign (Traitors R Us):

I must say I've found the pious whining of the various Democratic party flaks rather amusing. Said whining, combined with the biased memory of the Sedalia Democrat editorial staff (attempting to smear the Republicans by citing three drunks from a local tavern who showed up with inappropriate signs and were subsequently confronted by the police and forced to leave) clearly demonstrate exactly why the confrontation with the kerry-edwards circus was necessary. Just to clearly identify myself, I was the guy holding the wintersoldier.com sign. ...

Consider for a moment kerry's support for the continuing American Holocaust which has so far resulted in the murders of over 40 million unborn children. Next remember kerry's vote against the essential funding our troops in the current war on terror required to keep them properly supplied. Of course we can't forget kerry's continued support of the vain attempts to legitimize sexual perversion as 'alternate lifestyles'; and then there's his consistent stand against everything associated with gun rights issues. But even if one were to be able to ignore all of the above, anyone with a basic knowledge of the events surrounding the Vietnam war, and kerry's subsequent treasonous efforts to give aid and comfort to the enemy through his actions as a member of 'vietnam veterans against the war'; even if that's the only awareness one might have, it would still be sufficient to disqualify kerry from any public office, much less that of president of the United States.

As a disabled cold war veteran, I find everything john kerry actually stands for (as judged by his deeds, not just his words) reprehensible and entirely without merit. Obviously, from the crowd we had at the train station to meet the kerry-edwards circus train, I'm not the only one who holds these opinions. Verbal confrontation is an historic element of the political process in this country. If the Democrats were actually offended by this concept, they'd be doing something to call off their attack dogs prior to the Republican National Convention...but of course they aren't going to do anything at all; thus clearly demonstrating the hypocrisy of their complaints concerning the confrontation with the kerry-edwards circus train.

So to all those who weren't prepared to have their little leftwing cheerleading rally confronted with the facts, get over it. Everyone who lives in this area does NOT buy into the lies of kerry and his ilk; and those of us who don't are more than willing to continue such verbal confrontations with politicians just like him, as the opportunities present themselves. I guess you just need to be reminded of the words of another Missouri Democrat "if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen".

Mr. Arlin Adams


Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne.
Hark! How the heavenly anthem drowns all music but its own.
Awake, my soul, and sing of Him who died for thee,
And hail Him as thy matchless King through all eternity.

Crown Him the Virgin’s Son, the God incarnate born,
Whose arm those crimson trophies won which now His brow adorn;
Fruit of the mystic rose, as of that rose the stem;
The root whence mercy ever flows, the Babe of Bethlehem.

Crown Him the Son of God, before the worlds began,
And ye who tread where He hath trod, crown Him the Son of Man;
Who every grief hath known that wrings the human breast,
And takes and bears them for His own, that all in Him may rest.

Crown Him the Lord of life, who triumphed over the grave,
And rose victorious in the strife for those He came to save.
His glories now we sing, Who died, and rose on high,
Who died eternal life to bring, and lives that death may die.

Crown Him the Lord of peace, Whose power a scepter sways
From pole to pole, that wars may cease, and all be prayer and praise.
His reign shall know no end, and round His piercèd feet
Fair flowers of paradise extend their fragrance ever sweet.

Crown Him the Lord of love, behold His hands and side,
Those wounds, yet visible above, in beauty glorified.
No angel in the sky can fully bear that sight,
But downward bends his burning eye at mysteries so bright.

Crown Him the Lord of Heaven, enthroned in worlds above,
Crown Him the King to Whom is given the wondrous name of Love.
Crown Him with many crowns, as thrones before Him fall;
Crown Him, ye kings, with many crowns, for He is King of all.

Crown Him the Lord of lords, who over all doth reign,
Who once on earth, the incarnate Word, for ransomed sinners slain,
Now lives in realms of light, where saints with angels sing
Their songs before Him day and night, their God, Redeemer, King.

Crown Him the Lord of years, the Potentate of time,
Creator of the rolling spheres, ineffably sublime.
All hail, Redeemer, hail! For Thou has died for me;
Thy praise and glory shall not fail throughout eternity.


Postscript by Arlin's wife:

Arlin's warfare is accomplished.


Summoned home, the call has sounded,
Bidding a soldier his warfare cease;
And the song of angels resounded,
Welcomes a warrior to eternal peace.
Praise the Lord! from earthly struggles
A comrade has found release.
Death has lost its sting, the grave its victory;
Conflicts and dangers are over;
See him honored in the throne of glory,
Crowned by the hand of Jehovah!

Strife and sorrow over,
The Lord’s true faithful soldier
Has been called to go from the ranks below,
To the conq’ring host above.

Once the sword, but now the scepter,
Once the fight, now the rest and fame,
Broken every earthly fetter,
Now the glory for the cross and shame;
Once the loss of all for Jesus,
But now the eternal gain.
Trials and sorrow here have found their meaning
Mysteries their explanation;
Safe, forever in the sunlight gleaming
Of His eternal salvation.
