May the glory of Independence Day
Remain in mind in heart
May we cherish our hard-won freedom
That it never falls apart.

Because those who walked before us
Believed in freedoms cause so much
We can carry forth a torch
Of honor and In God We Trust.

That first Independence Day
Now more than two centuries past
Must live forever in our thoughts
Never forgotten - never a lapse.

It is a precious land we hold
In safekeeping for our children
That they, as we, may enjoy
Lives bountiful, worth living.

May Gods blessings ever
Ring out over all our land
A toast of praise we raise today
Americans - join hand in hand!
