The Words That Showed The Way

Philadelphia, Chestnut Street
A hot mid-summer day
A crier read in July heat
The words that showed the way
That men should hold till end of time
Their honor and their lives
In debt to freedom so sublime
That freedom’s gift survives
Travails and horror yet to fall
Upon this land so blest
And free men answer to the call
And honor never rest
