Under God

Lyrics

Print-Friendly Lyrics

Half a century ago two simple words
Declared a truth that’s planted in our hearts
And every time the flag is raised
We’ve been honored to repeat the phrase
So the world will know we are

Under God
America’s been blessed
Under God
Brought through every trial and test
We are sheltered by the mercy He chose to give
In privilege and abundance this nation lives
Under God
Freedom has survived
Under God
We need to recognize
We’re dependent on His goodness, indebted to His care
Maybe more than any people any time or anywhere
Still our only hope and prayer
Is under God

When we pledge allegiance now it’s under God
Those words have shaped the land that we hold dear
Some insist it’s not allowed
To acknowledge that we need Him now
But it has never been so clear

Under God
America’s been blessed
Under God
Brought through every trial and test
We are sheltered by the mercy He chose to give
In privilege and abundance this nation lives
Under God
Freedom has survived
Under God
We need to recognize
We’re dependent on His goodness, indebted to His care
Maybe more than any people any time or anywhere
Still our only hope and prayer

Under God
Freedom has survived
Under God
We need to recognize
We’re dependent on His goodness, indebted to His care
Maybe more than any people any time or anywhere
Still our only hope and prayer
Still our only hope and prayer
Is under God
