But If Not...

A line from the Book of Daniel, sent by trapped British troops on the beach at Dunkirk in 1940. The Llamabutchers quote-the-quote from the article "The Demise of Literature" by George Will.
17 If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. 18 But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
I, too, find the quote reassuring in the Age of Obama.

The Lord is my shield and my strength
