Anthem For The Fourth Of July

By Anonymous

On this auspicious Day,
Freemen, thy homage pay,
The king of kings.
Ancient of endless days,
Above all creature praise,
To Him loud Anthems raise,
On Freedom’s wings.
Our favor’d land afar,
The world’s bright morning star,
Shines in the West.
It’s light shall still increase,
Till Liberty and peace,
Expand, and never cease
To make men blest,
Justice and equal laws
Maintain the sacred course
Columbia boasts,
Freedom’s our magic word,
The rights of man our sword,
Our banner is the Lord,
The Lord of hosts.
