MY COUNTRY ‘TIS OF THEE

‘The Fourth’ a day to celebrate,

We have good reason to.

“One nation under God,” we say

But now a conflicting view.

.

.

Our fathers stood firm for the truth.

They fought for it and won!

We have grown now and the truth proclaimed

Is not accepted by some.

.

.

‘The truth’ what is it? Pilate asked.

I think an honest question.

The Lord gave answer, I believe,

As honest as the question.

.

.

“I,” He said with authority,

“I am the way and the truth

And the life.”  Abundant and free

But this we do not teach the youth.

.

.

Obviously the truth is Christ,

The Divine expression of GOD!

Anything else is cult and wrong

And that we cannot afford!

.

.

Of course, that is what our freedom says

We are free to live and choose.

But I cannot help throwing this in,

It is either The Way or lose.

.

.

Songs we like to sing on the Fourth;

“…His truth goes marching on.”

From the “Battle Hymn of the Republic,”

But then what is in a song?

.

.

“My Country ‘tis of Thee, sweet land…”

“My eyes have seen The Glory of the coming of The Lord.”

“Christ was born across the sea with a Glory in His bosom

That transfigures you and me!”

.

.

But celebrate; it is nice to know,

One thing we agree upon,

The fireworks are fun and nice

And the flag will still fly on and on!
