July 4 Thanksgiving

To friends and family far and near 
And all others, you I cheer
Deep gratitude for then and now
Brave sacrifice that you allow
Upholding for my freedom

Forgetting not what lies behind
New purposes in which we find
Ourselves caught up to play a part
I thank you for your gracious heart
You give to me in freedom

This holiday we celebrate
Memories reverberate
And as we struggle on and on
With gratitude for what’s been won
I thank God, for you, and freedom
