Independence Day!!!

Happy 4th of July!!!! Birthday of the great nation I live in. :) Here are my 2 favorite songs: God Bless America and Oh Beautiful…whenever I hear these I always wonder why one of them isn’t the National Anthem because out national anthem is 1) very difficult to sing and 2)not nearly as meaningful as either one. If I had to choose I would pick Oh Beautiful.

Glod Bless America

God Bless America,
Land that I  love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru 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.

America The Beautiful

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
