God Bless America: Lyrics

Author: Irving Berlin, 1918; revised 1938

Spoken Introduction:

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. 

Song lyrics

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 ocean white with foam 
God bless America, My home sweet home.
