4th of July Closing - The Flag
We watch the flag as it passes
A flash of color against the
Its fifty stars are as
As those few that shone by
dawn's first light
The brave, bright red that
will never fade,
By the blood of men's
sacrifice was mad.
The white, for our nation's
Can be kept from stain by you
The blue; the vastness of
God's own sky,
His promise that freedom shall never die.
The mighty cities; the
The many churches for praise
The chance to do, the chance
In a land our forefathers
fought to be free.
The hope that the world is
In our will for peace but our
strength for war
A symbol we cherish and
And we bar our heads and our hearts beat high
As our flag, "Old Glory" is passing by.
