God Bless America

30 May

(My variation of the song by Irving Berlin with a portion of his lovely lyrics listed below.)


It’s the land I love.

Stand closely so we know you are near.

Teach us to appreciate our land, its people and places.

Guide us in easy and hard times.

Be our guide, our friend and national leader

When humans fail us.

Lord, we love our country.

Lord, we love you.

God bless America, land that I love
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with the light from above

From the mountains to the prairies
To the oceans white with foam
God bless America, my home sweet home.
