The Statue of Liberty

In 1974, a member of the Gospel singing group, The Couriers, wrote a song that still resonates today. Neil Enloe, after viewing the Statue of Liberty for the first time at age 36, worked to put in writing his thankfulness for his two-fold freedom.

I haven’t heard this song performed in a while, but it is a great lyric to remind us of our blessings and loyalties on this Independence Day.

God Bless America!

In New York Harbor stands a lady
With a torch raised to the sky
And all who see her know she stands for
Liberty for you and me.

I'm so proud to be called an American
To be named with the brave and the free
I will honor our flag and our trust in God
And the Statue of Liberty.

On lonely Golgotha stood a cross
With my Lord raised to the sky
And all who kneel there live forever
As all the saints can testify.

I'm so glad to be called a Christian
To be named with the ransomed and whole
As the statue liberates the citizen
So the cross liberates the soul.

Oh, the cross is my Statue of Liberty
For it was there that my soul was set free
Unashamed I'll proclaim that a rugged cross
Is my Statue of Liberty.
The Statue of Liberty - Performed by The Cathedral Quartet

Colossians 1:20 20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, 

John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
