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.

    It is important that america recognize that all of our blessings come from god so that we do not become self-sufficient but rely on him for everything that we need.

    If it wasn't for god watching over us were wouldnt' be free. No matter the storms of life god has watched over the service men and women as they fought for our freedom.

    It means that america is a lost nation and most prone to violence and evil at night. That's why god's guidance is requested and needed everywhere, from the mountains to the lowest elevations. And, of course, that america is a much better and freer country than those overseas.

    It means that god made america form the mountains to the grain of sand. He guides us and america is our home in which god made for us.
