DEFEND

The noise of strife cannot dispel

The quiet confidence

Contained in a nation’s freedom!

We sing in its defense!

.

.

“Land of the free,” where courage stands,

A symbol of our freedom.

Unlike so many other lands,

Where men have been and come from.

.

.

So who am I to say what is right,

This land of the free?

In this, “Home of the brave,” delight!

Denominationally!

.

.

Where our God is worshiped freely,

So do I love this land?

My Country, it is of thee,

I acknowledge and stand!

.

.

The father of our country stood

For the Father of us all!

Father, God, sole Creator

On this we rise or fall!

.

.

Not Mercury, Neptune, or Atlas,

Creator of these created!

“Land of the free and home of the brave,”

Counterfeits ill fated!

.

.

My love for Country is exceeded by

Love for our God who made her.

Let’s face it, the One who made me

Also the One Creator!

.

.

Therefore, “My Country ‘tis of thee,

Let freedom ring!”

Raise my voice forever free!

Whenever I sing!

.
