Jesus on the 4th of July


 

JESUS ON THE 4TH OF JULY

 

Jesus on the 4th of July

 

We gather 'round to celebrate

On Independence Day

Pay homage to our country

As the children run and play.

 

With barbecues and picnics

And fireworks in the air

The flag we own is proudly flown

To show how much we care.

 

The stars and stripes 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

Who gives the bright display

The reason why we paint the sky

On Independence Day.
