God Bless America
And our troops, law officers and all of Her guardians.

Land that I love
Those who know this love are truly the Blessed People.

Stand beside her, and guide her,
As God stands to safeguard us, we align ourselves shoulder to shoulder
while bowing our heads in thanks for His protection and guidance.

Thru the night with a light from above.
Dusk to dawn and sunrise to sunset, we are humbled
by His radiant supremacy and power.

From the mountains, to the prairies,

Forging straight up from the great prairies of gilded grain,
like a church spire paying homage to the heavens,
to symbolize our faith in Him.

To the oceans, white with foam
Seas of Blessed People of all colors, each seeking
the purity only He can bestow.

God bless America, My home sweet home.
May God continue to bless the Blessed People
as this is their homeland forevermore
