God Will Finish His Work and Establish Their Freedom

Benjamin Franklin

“It is with great sincerity I join you in acknowledging and admiring the dispensations of Providence in our favor. America has only to be thankful and to persevere. God will finish his work and establish their freedom…. If it had not been for the justice of our cause, and the consequent interposition of Providence,in which we had faith, we must have been ruined. If had ever before been an atheist, I should now have been convinced of the being and government of a Deity! It is He who abases the proud and favors the humble. May we never forget His goodnes to us, and may our future conduct manifest our gratitude….I believe in one God, Creator of the universe. That He governs it by his providence. That He ought to be worshiped.” – Benjamin Franklin
