  • 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

    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 homeWriter/s: Irving Berlin
