GOD BLESS AMERICA by Irving Berlin (modified by Leon Davis)
While a virus abounds from far across the sea,
Let us all be united in this land that is free.
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer.
God bless America, land that I love.
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with a light from above. From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam, God Bless America,
My home sweet home.
