America (Let’s Not Forget)
A Poem in Honor of the Fourth of July

See the torch lifted high,
  Against the blue Manhattan sky
“Send me your poor and your weak,
  For your huddled masses I will speak."

Great as the freedom that she brings,
  She’s still second to our King.
Jesus Christ our King of Kings,
  To Him we turn for blessings only He can bring.

God bless America,
  Sweet Land of Liberty,
Let’s not forget between the fireworks and barbeques,
  God’s blessing is what really keeps us free.

Rolling hills and countryside,
  For our freedom men have died,
Giving up their lives for liberty,
  They spilled their blood that we should all be free.

But all they fought for would be loss,
  But for God’s work upon the cross,
It’s only through God’s grace that we are really free,
  And through God’s grace our country grows in liberty.

God bless America,
  Purple mountains majesty,
Let’s not forget between the fireworks and barbeques,
  God’s blessing is what really keeps us free.

God bless America,
  Sweet Land of Liberty,
Let’s not forget between the fireworks and barbeques,
  To thank the Lord our God for keeping us free.
