God Bless America

I learned today that the song God Bless America was written by Irving Berlin, a  first generation Jewish immigrant who watched from afar as his homeland was destroyed during World War 2.  Being the places I have been, seeing the things that I have seen, I thank God for our country every day.

I love this song…here are the lyrics

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 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, My home sweet home.
