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 oceans 
White with foam
God bless America
My home sweet home

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
