For every wound that's ever bled
Our soldier's heart the golden thread
Who fought with valor and so brave
We represent the love they gave
With colors born within the sky
The flashing rockets bursting high
We close our eyes and hold on fast
To feelings that will always last
For patriots who have that right
To celebrate their freedom's light
We stand before a nation blessed
With pride and honor we've professed
Today our hearts are in attendance
Upon the soil of independence
Remembering what our glory is
The right to freedom where we live.
