On The Red, White and Blue

Everyone knows
just where I stand
on the red, white and blue
symbol of our land.

I have shared my thoughts
when they’re asked of me
on “In God We Trust”and
“My Country ‘Tis of Thee”

The pledge of allengiance
it should be made clear
is recited by all
who choose to live here

Give our flag the honor
and respect it commands
as the symbol of freedom
that governs these lands

With life and liberty
come opportunities
not separate laws and
closed communities

Jesus said we must all
“Love one another”
not viciously kill
our sister or brother

When I hear those words
“Oh say can you see,”
I’m proud to sing
“My Country ‘Tis of Thee!”

God bless America!

“I pledge allegiance
to the flag
of the United States of America
and to the Republic
for which it stands,
One nation
under God
indivisible
with liberty 
and justice
for all.”
