O Lord Save Thy People: The 1812 Overture on the National Mall

How many Americans watching the fireworks this 4th of July accompanied by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture know that they're hearing an Orthodox Christian prayer?

While we spend a lot of time discussing the symbolism of esoteric evil here at RogueMoney, let us also not forget that the angels also walk among us. - JWS

O Lord, save Thy people,
and bless Thine inheritance!
Grant victory to the Orthodox Christians*
over their adversaries,
and by virtue of Thy cross,
preserve Thy habitation!

God Save the Tsar
Strong, prevailing,
Reign for our glory
Reign so that enemies fear,
Righteous Tsar.
God save the Tsar!
