Make It YOUR Independence Day!


Here is a great song, and someone did a great job on the fireworks to make the video.



Listen to our declaration,
Listen to our testament!
We've been given a revelation,
We are sure of where we stand.
So let the banner be unfurled,
We've found the light of hope in a dying world!

Hear the myth of modern man:
"You're the god of your own land".
They call you weak, a spineless fool,
Say you've given up your right to rule.
But I have been to the "Land of Me",
And I know I was never free;
Freedom came when I gave it all away!

That's why I call it independence day!
Call it independence day.
Let the rockets blaze across the sky,
Raise the flag of faith up high,
Let the doubters call it what they may:
It's independence day!

The world can crown another hundred kings,
But I believe in a better dream.
They may call it slavery,
But the biggest chain I knew was me.
So let the idols tumble down,
The walls of lies crumble to the ground,
I know where salvation can be found,
Let the idols tumble down!

That's why I call it independence day!
Call it independence day.
Let the rockets blaze across the sky,
Raise the flag of faith up high,
Let the doubters call it what they may:
It's independence day!

So join us in the celebration,
It's the birth of a holy nation,
As people of light we are proud to say:
"It's independence day!"

That's why I call it independence day!
Call it independence day.
Let the rockets blaze across the sky,
Raise the flag of faith up high,
Let the doubters call it what they may:
It's independence day!
