On Liberty: Tribute to the Fourth

City streets and steady drum beats, store windows and open doors,
Mountain streams, light that beams, water waves and sandy shores,
Valleys of green and lakes serene, skies of blue and Redwoods high,
Clouds of rain and fields of grain, songs of joy and rugged tomboys

Chains of tyranny have been off-thrown
As liberty has blown through our souls

Church bells ring and choirs sing as people raise anthem of praise,
Brothers and sisters join hand in hand and stand in worship grand,
All glory, laud, and honor are offered across this country so grand
To the One from whom freedom comes and abundant blessings flow

Chains of tyranny have been off-thrown
As liberty has blown through our souls

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. (2 Corinthians 3.17 NRSV)
