GOD BLESS AMERICA 



Author: Irving Berlin, 1918; revised 1938
Spoken Introduction:
While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer.

 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 ocean white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home

 



Turn up your speakers- sit back and watch.

 

Click below to hear the words spoken 
by the late Red Skelton 
on his television  program as he related the 
story of his teacher, Mr. Laswell, who felt his 
students had come to think of the
Pledge of Allegiance as merely something
 to recite in class each day.

Lonely Solidier

He was standing in the sand with his gun 
slung across his shoulder
Thinking back on life at home,
those days before he was a soldier
Just one among so many yet somehow he felt alone
As his thoughts crossed the water to those
loved ones back at home
When life seemed so safe and tranquil with 
his sons and his wife
Before that September morning that 
changed our world and life
He stepped forth for peace and freedom as
he answered his countryís call
Knowing with this selfless gesture
 he might be asked to give his all
He believed in God and country and 
would follow the command
And march boldly into battle across this 
forsaken desert sand
He had heard the marchersí protests and 
the celebrities with their cause
It caused him pain and anguish and 
gave this soldier time to pause
Werenít they too against this evil, 
why not march for it to cease
It wasnít about war and fighting but 
our freedom and world peace
He would bravely go into conflict and
 put his life upon the line
Not just for his wifeís and childrenís but 
for your life and for mine
He looks towards the future and 
prays for a world free from strife
To this goal he is willing to fight for 
freedom and give his life
We salute this lonely soldier and
 all the others in the fold
And we pray for their protection as again 
we hear "Letís roll".

God Bless America and keep us safe and free
 Safe from all our enemies, wherever they may be...
And teach us to walk humbly and closer in Thy ways, 
And give us faith and courage and put 
purpose in our days, 
And make each one of us aware that
each must do his part, 
For in the individual is where peace
  must have its start- 
For a better world to live in where 
all are safe and free
Must start with faith and hope and 
love deep in the heart of me
