“Freedom’s Song”

Heavenly Father, enthroned above
We praise you for your endless love
Abounding in grace and mercy shown
We worship you…and you alone
Thank you for your only Son
For through his death your will was done
With grateful hearts, we humbly pray
That you will guide us everyday
Compassionate Father, we bless your name
And rest in knowing…you stay the same
We seek your wisdom for our nation
To remind each future generation
Of the hopes and dreams of freedom’s song
Being “founded” in God…is what made us strong
“In God we trust”…must stay our prayer
Please keep us God, within your care


Psalm 100: 1-5
