Oh this beautiful country that you see
is quite the blessing for you and me.
Itís brimming with boundless wealth untold.
Itís called the land of the free and the bold.
We have the greatest industrial might.
Other countries envy our future bright.
Weíre the greatest super powerĖno doubt.
And others canít figure how that came about.
How did we, the youngest country of them all,
wind up being so prosperous, mighty and tall.
Itís certainly a mystery they canít explain,
therefore they often criticize and complain.
So why is this country of ours so great indeed?
Is it luck or is Someone helping with each need?
"Listen carefully. Iíll tell you where the secret lies.
Itíll surprise you but the answer lay before your eyes.
Of all the nations on earth that the Lord did create,
this land was chosen for a people He would separate.
Those who feel the yearnings for freedom in their heart.
Those who were willing to fight and do their part.
For a gift so grand as freedom, that is merely given,
is seldom appreciated, easily lost and often taken.
But there is more to your freedom that you perceive.
For the Lord guides and protects those who believe.
This country will only remain prosperous, mighty and grand
as long as the more part of the people follow the Lordís hand.
If they turn their hearts from Him, evil and corruption will abide,
and the protection of the Lordís hand will no longer be at your side.
So always remember that the secret of this great land
lies in the hearts of the people and as to where they stand.
If they choose the Lord first, they will stay the free and brave.
They will never be overrun or become an indentured slave."
