On July 4th

image

This country’s flag is flying high, lit up against the summer night sky.
We are grateful for the brave men who fought and died,
On Fourth of July, the nation’s Pride, Independence Day.
Oh God, we do pray,
Bless our land, the home of the free, land of the brave.
Thanks to those who were unafraid, whose hearts they gave,
So we could worship as we choose — where none can refuse each American’s personal religious belief.
No one must ever take this right away,
For I think we would die, yes even today…
For the freedom and right to bend our knees and pray,
To live as our forefathers saw best, at peace they will rest,
Because we will live free — there is simply no other way to be.
