Liberty by Raymond A. Foss

Liberty, from tyranny
from oppression,
for a sovereign across the sea
So we began, so we claimed our right
in Philadelphia that summer
so long ago, on this day.

Throwing off the shackles
the weight of the crown
charting a new course
a new nation, free and equal
an aspiration, a hope
written in those words of mettle.

May we ever strive, onward
working together, to achieve this dream
a country at peace
and with liberty and justice for all;
None knowing want, none living in fear
to this prayer, this day especially
we hold them dear.

July 4, 2009

Galatians 5:13-26
written for July 4th celebration
