The Heartbeat of Freedom
Painting by William Adolphe Bouguereau

The Heartbeat of Freedom

The heartbeat of FREEDOM beats steady
it is strong and it is true
It beats in a rhythm of unity
and beats within me and you.
The heartbeat means we are alive
and all our cells must work together
To produce a healthy, vibrant nation
that will survive in any weather.
Our heart is the very center
and must be nourished at all times
We must keep our life blood pumping
during these uncertain times.
So let us reach out to each other
and cherish what we've been given
May we grow together in Grace and Love
and appreciate what God has given.
