It’s always there in simple parade bands and homemade floats wending through quaint neighborhoods… reflected in the words and prayers and patriotic spirit of the people.
It shines in kaleidoscope lights flashing jewel radiance across the night sky…and triumphant march notes on air. Stirring the spirit to Majesty.
But most especially, I sense it high and lifted up each and every time I sing this song… knowing The Glory of His Worshipful Presence by the lump these heartfelt, prayerful words and music rise in my throat:
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
~ Irving Berlin
May His Spirit stir hearts afresh with His Glory
like an ever growing breeze blowing far and wide across this country!
