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 saved 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

It was there that my soul was set free

Unashamed I'll proclaim that a rugged cross

Is my State of Liberty.

The song, "Statue of Liberty" was written by Neil Enloe.
