This morning in church we sang God Bless America, written by Irving Berlin in 1918 and revised in 1938. I didn't realize that this song is a prayer for our nation, written and revised during our two World Wars. This will be my prayer, too. Join me, won't you?
God Bless America
"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 the light from above
From the mountains To the prairies,
To the ocean white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home."
