July Blessings ~ Counting It All Joy! (Week Four)


The birth of a nation
A celebration 
Of epic portions
Celebrating the red white and blue
A salute to those who gave their all
Families and friends gather
Displays of fireworks 
That light the evening sky
Happy Birthday 
You are 215 year young
God bless us
Each and everyone


God Bless America

God bless America, land that I love

Stand beside her and guide her

Through the night with the light from above
From the mountains to the prairies

To the oceans white with foam

God bless America, my home sweet home
God bless America, land that I love

Stand beside her and guide her

Through the night with the light from above
From the mountains to the prairies

To the oceans white with foam
