We gather 'round to celebrate
On Independence Day
Pay Homage to our Country
As the children run and play.
With barbecue and picnics
And fireworks in the air
The flag we own is proudly flown
To show how much we care.
The stars and strips spell freedom
She waves upon the breeze
While bursts of colors can be seen
Above the towering trees.
This is all quite wonderful
We revel in delight
But God above in divine love
Has brought this day to light
With just a stroke of liberty
A touch of His great hand
He gave democracy to us
And helped this country stand.
The stripes upon our stately flag
Were touched by His sweet grace
Each star of white that shines so bright
Reflects His loving face.
So as you turn to face the flag
For battles that were fought
Be filled with pride for those who died
And freedoms that were bought.
But don't forget to thank the One
That gives the bright display
The reason why we paint the sky
On Independence Day.
