For Love of God and Country

Twenty thousand lights

Shone brightly that night

As their voices were singing

Through the air they were ringing

For love of  God and country.

 

“God bless America

Land that I love

Stand beside her

And guide her

Through the night

With the light from above.”

 

Then the one without a soul

Who had paid the devil’s toll

Sprayed the crowd with doom

‘Ere slithering into his own tomb

A coward’s death to state it bluntly.

 

Still that isn’t quite the end

As the greatest love for friend

Crowned certain heads with glory

As they told the greater story

America shines brightly once more.
