Happy Fourth of July 2014!
I found this in today’s Magnificat. The words can be sung to the tune of Amazing Grace:
I love this native land of mineA noble land and free,Adorned by nature’s lavish handWith fairest artistry.Within this western sphere it lies,A gem of peerless priceWhose shores are washed by ageless tides –A long-lost paradise.It was unto this gracious landOur founding fathers cameTo build a nation strong and grandUnto thy glorious name:A land whose firm foundations sureWere built on faith in these,Where virtue’s good and brotherhoodWere crowned with liberty.Preserve this nation as thine ownAnd keep its people free;Keep ever bright this beacon-lightOf truth and liberty!
