God Bless America
Irving Berlin (w/m)
, 1939
VERSE
While the storm clouds gather
Far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance
To a land that’s free;
Let us all be greatful
For a land so fair,
As we raise our voices
In a solemn prayer.
CHORUS
God bless America,
Land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the praires,
To the oceans white with foam,
God bless America,
My home sweet home.
