AMERICAN PRAYER © 2012 by Robert J. Sartore and Web Adventures LLC
Two hundred years and more, we grew up on this shore,
With men like Martin, Abraham, and John.
War could never take, their faith in brighter days.
Well, I wish that I could call and ask them, what would you do now?
Well, I'm not one for debate on either history or fate,
What can I say, with just a song, or maybe I'll just pray...
Oh my America, I wonder where you are,
I keep you in my heart even when you lose your way.
Oh my red, white and blue, I'll say this prayer for you,
To you I pledge my life love - Oh my America, my America.
And if my wish came true, what would they say or do?
Perhaps some insights or sage advice on politics and news.
And I would not debate those words that they might say,
I think instead, just maybe, they'd bow their heads and pray...
Oh my America, you are the land we loved,
We kept you in our hearts even when you lost your way.
Oh my red, white and blue, we'll say this prayer for you,
For you, our lives and love we gave.
And it just doesn't matter if you're democrat or republican
You could be black, white, yellow,
Or brown, red, 'hello' we're all the same.
You could be left, you might be right,
But we're all the same tonight.
We're American, all American!
Oh my America, I'll be your faithful son,
I'll hold you in my heart and I'll pray for you each day.
Oh my red, white and blue, I'll say this prayer for you.
I know that God will see us through.
Oh my America, oh my America.
