God Bless America

 

Greetings Family and Friends,

This is in continuation of the Patriotic Theme for America the beautiful from a post I made some time

ago.

 

 

 

 

Psalm 33:12

 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord;

and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

Psalm 144:10-15

 

It is he that giveth salvation unto kings: who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword.

 Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood:

 That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:

 That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:

 That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets.

 Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.

 

 

 

 

 

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 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.

 

 

Irving Berlin wrote the song in 1918 while serving the U.S. Army at Camp Upton in Yaphank, New York,

In 1938, with the rise of Hitler, Berlin, who was Jewish and a first-generation European immigrant, felt it was time to

revive it as a “peace song,” and it was introduced on an Armistice Day broadcast in 1938 sung by Kate Smith, on her radio show.

 

Thank you so much for stopping by.
