Heart Gifts....series.... God Bless America

God Bless America

"America the beautiful"_
May it always stay that way_
But to keep "Old Glory" flying
There's a price that we must pay...
For everything worth having
Demands work and sacrifice,
And freedom is a Gift from God
That commands the highest price...
For all our wealth and progress
Are as worthless as can be
Without the Faith that made us great
And kept our country free...
Nor can our nation hope to live
Unto itself along,
For the problems of our neighbors
Must today become our own
And while it's hard to understand
The complexities of war,
Each one of us must realize
That we are fighting for
The principles of freedom
And the decency of man,
and as a Christian Nation
We must protect our honor
And fulfill our obligation...
So in these times of crisis
Let us offer no resistance
In giving help to those who need
Our strength and our assistance_
And "The Stars and Stripes Forever"
Will remain a symbol of
A rich and mighty nation...
Built on Faith and Truth and Love.
