With Pen to the Page – v2

With pen to the page
they spoke across the ages
to the cause we keep
to the things we believe
of a freedom to be
within this land we love
When all men are truly free

Words worth fighting for
four score and more,
remembering all who have gone before
who sacrificed and died
so that this land could truly be
as the founders prayed we may be
one people together, united and free
