Let Freedom Ring!

For knowing that I have a place
as I wake to a new day,
For the right to speak my mind,
or kneel quietly to pray.

For the dreams I strive to reach
for the love I'm free to give,
For the laughter shared with dearest friends,
a necessity to live.

For the security and peace of mind
that all is safe and sound,
For growing, sharing, hoping, caring
there's goodness all around.

For all this we're grateful for
whisper soft or loudly sing,
Their duty and their sacrifice
Have let our freedom ring.
