    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 start 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
    That gives the bright display
    The reason why we paint the sky
    On Independence Day
