Hello to all!

My name is Dan Snyder - son of Al Snyder of ELWA. Liberia was my home from birth until I was almost 12 when God called my father to start another Christian radio station in the Caribbean.

Liberia has always been where I tell people I am from and has remained near and dear to my heart. God has truely blessed our country now with a new democratically elected president and an opportunity to rebuild to new heights of freedom, fame and power.

I wrote a poem about Liberia - what it was, its tribulation and its new potential. I was blessed to see our new President in Atlanta several months ago and gave a copy of this poem to her.

I hope you find it to be a blessing to you.

LIBERIA:

All hail, Liberia, hail! all hail!
Built with a dream for freedom to prevail;
Blessed by God so all could see,
His hands at work and His majesty.

Rich in resources and abundant beauty,
A special nation with respect and diversity
Grew to heights of fame and power,
A bright and shining light upon a tower.

The joy and gladness of hearts united
Sadly fell prey to devastating strife and war.
The good life we knew too soon departed,
Replaced with an infected and painful sore.

But with hope anew our nation is now reborn;
The healing has begun in hearts so deeply torn.
Let us learn from the scars of pain and sorrow,
And work with the vision of a new tomorrow.

All hail, Liberia, hail! all hail!
Our dreams and freedoms again prevail.
Long live Liberia, happy land!
The home of glorious liberty, by God's command.

My love and prayers are with Liberia, our President and you all!

Thank You! I am not a poet but believe God gave me the thought and words to write. I hope, pray and trust that many more Liberians will see and read it and be blessed and encouraged by it. Have a GREAT day!
