Verse:
While the storm clouds gath - er,  Far a - cross the sea,
Let us swear al - le - giance,  To a land that's free.
Let us all be grate - ful,  For a land so fair,
As we raise our voi - ces,  In a sol - emn prayer.
 
Chorus:
God Bless A - mer - i - ca,  Land that I love,
Stand be - side her and guide her, thru the night with a light from a - bove.
From the Moun - tains, to the prai - ries, to the o - ceans, white with foam.
God Bless A - mer - i - ca, my home sweet home.
God Bless A - mer - i - ca, my home sweet home.
