STAND WITH ME

 

COME YE, AMERICANS…STAND WITH ME

STAND ON THE SIDE OF LIBERTY

STAND UP AND BE COUNTED AMONG THE BRAVE

SALUTE YOUR FLAG,  LONG MAY IT WAVE!

 

STAND TALL FOR ALL YOU BELIEVE;

BE NOT AFRAID TO SHOW YOU GRIEVE.

BE NOT AFRAID TO SHOW YOU CARE

AND BE NOT ASHAMED TO SAY THAT PRAYER!

 

GOD BLESS AMERICA, AND FOR ALL IT STANDS,

GOD BLESS OUR CHILDREN AND THEIR FREEDOM DEMANDS!

IT IS OUR DUTY TO PROTECT THEM,  ONE AND ALL;

OUR PRIVILEGE TO TEACH THEM TO STAND TALL!

 

STAND WITH ME, AMERICA, STAND PROUD!

DO NOT GET LOST IN THE DOUBTING CROWD!

STAND WITH STRENGTH AND WITH COURAGE TOO,

STAND FOR YOUR COUNTRY AS IT STANDS FOR YOU!

 

STAND SIDE BY SIDE WITH ME,

STAND AND BE COUNTED IN THIS LAND OF THE FREE!

IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT WE KEEP IN OUR SIGHTS

CONTINUED FREEDOM THROUGHOUT THIS LONG NIGHT.

 

GOD BLESS AMERICA,  HEAR MY SONG!

SING OUT ITS BLESSINGS LOUD AND LONG!

ABOVE ALL, DO NOT FALTER,  THERE IS A JOB TO DO,

GOD BLESS AMERICA,  WE STAND BY YOU!
