God Bless America
Land that I Love
Stand Beside Her
And Guide Her
Through the Night
With the Light
It is easy to be Super Patriot now days. We are spoiled, so we can say we are the greatest and attest to our own greatness. I don’t. I see the good and the bad we are……,
and I still Love my Country, though one day I will leave it behind.
It is a good place.
It has served me well.
I have prospered and used that prosperity to both draw closer to God, and farther away from him. At times I have been distracted by my countries need, when God alone, and only alone could repair the mess I have made of this country.
I have influenced the World for the betterment of Mankind while living here, and I have worsened the world by my examples I have set.
In my success I have achieved much for God, and only he can see all I have done. He knows well my failures and those things I did I thought were right, but were not.
I have known the ire of my friends, the fire of my enemies blows;
And the fight to stay true to the faith I say I have in the Land of the Living as I see the home I am only a part of a short time I live here.
I have shamed myself at times seeking acclaim, and not admitted to the humility I so dearly needed to see clearly, but in every occasion when need must prevail above all that I am;
I have answered the call.
I am every American.
I can stand tall; right and wrong:
“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
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home.
God Bless America.
