Independence Day

We acknowledge Independence Day
On the 4th of July every year.
We should celebrate by being thankful
For the freedoms that we hold dear!
 
We spend a long weekend relaxing
Barbecue smoke is everywhere.
Then, at night, we go to the park
And watch fireworks burst in the air!
 
But it is really important to know
Independence didn't come overnight.
Several hundred years had to pass
Before the many wrongs became right!
 
Our forefathers fought hard and struggled
And over the years many lives were lost.
Take time to reflect just how lucky we are
And appreciate those who have paid the cost!
 
God also played a very important part
In securing the freedoms we hold so dear.
But, if we turn our back on God
These freedoms could well disappear!
 
So thank God for the lives we enjoy
In this Great, Blessed country we love!
Keep on praying that we'll never lose
God's blessings from Heaven above!
