Grade Level 3

Composer: Lee Greenwood, arr. Stephen Bulla

 

Program Notes:

Here is a patriotic song describing pride in America that was written by Lee Greenwood in 1984. It has obtained a classic status that few songs reach. It was a favorite of President Ronald Reagan and received greater prominence during the Gulf War as a way of boosting morale. Much like Irving Berlin’s 1918 “God Bless America” it points to a God to whom “we raise our voices, in a solemn prayer."

“Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. Bow down before Him, His glory proclaim. With gold of obedience and incense of lowliness, kneel and adore Him, the Lord is His name!"
