God Bless America by Irving Berlin - written during WWI,
but first performed in 1938)

"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 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


*In 1940 he created The God Bless America Fund from which the proceeds of sales of sheet music, phonographs, etc. went to the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, the two organizations he believed - best calculated to promote unity of mind and patriotism.
