An American, am I, and proud to be

One Nation, under God, so blessed are we

Every one an individual, in their own special way

And we should honor our flag, each and every day

This country was built, on freedom of church and state

For every woman, man and child.

And this freedom we celebrate

Going to our own church

And practicing our faith, too

Is a powerful privilege, for me and you

Many people have died

For their freedom to worship or not

Believing that God exists

Even religous wars have been fought

Now we come to 2013

And we wonder how long it will last

Before our freedom for speech, church and state

Will be something in the past

So stand up for America

Raise Old Glory with great pride

Loving God and Country

Is not a thing to hide

Yes, stand up America

God bless the USA

Hold on to your freedoms today

Before they are taken away
