Can you hear it?
Stop, listen, it wonít be long
The sounds of freedom ring.
All around the nation sings.
Our hearts resound with elation
As we celebrate the birth of our nation.
Flags are waving high
As we remember with a sigh
Those who fought to keep us free.
And we pray on bended knee
Thanking the Father for this place
That is the home of many a race.
Towards the sky we do stare
Watching fireworks and their glare.
Parades and picnics do abound
In this land of freedomís sound.
But in the midst of our celebration
Let us not forget the high cost of our nation.
Many valiant men died just to give
The chance for each of us to live
Under the cover of freedomís song.
Rich and poor, weak and strong all join in the throng
Celebrating each in his own way
Our nationís birth on this day.
