Happy Birthday, America

Celebrate Our Birthday

Come on grand ole US of A
Let fly the flag, celebrate our gift,
The flame of life soaring in the glory
Of all we have to give.

The power of the Word of God
Crying liberty for all,
A hope, a future, an eternity
Freely poured from shore to shore.

The aroma of the home baked pie
A symbol of warm caring hearts,
How much the more our eternal faith
In how we make our mark.

For in the blood of Christ, we stand today
Not as an empty crying crowd,
But united in truth we offer all
A heritage so proud.

Yet, shall we honor the whole, and also the one
Within the heart of me,
Where true peace of God is found
And where we are set free.
