9/11 Song

Here are the lyrics for a song I wrote just after 9/11. It is for SATB plus a children's choir can be added. You can find the sheet music for the song at http://www.lulu.com/content/2742617. ($1.99)



I Believe in America

I be-lieve in A-mer-i-ca
Our land where truth and free-dom reign
I be-lieve in A-mer-i-ca
I'll stand be-hind her name

We see ci-ties that gleam with the shed-ding of tears.
We'll draw on the strength that's sus-tained through the years.
May we pledge to each o-ther this faith filled de-cree,
To let right-eous-ness dwell in the land of the free.
We'll cling to our fore-fa-thers' dream to pre-serve
All the rights and the liber-ties which we de-serve.

I be-lieve in A-mer-i-ca
Our land where truth and free-dom reign
I be-lieve in A-mer-i-ca
I'll stand be-hind her name

On the wings of the ea-gle, our pray-ers as-cend.
God bless hearts and souls of this na-tion to mend.
As we re-build our coun-try, through tri-als we'll trod.
May we lean on each o-ther, but look to our God.
When we all stand to-gether, and when faith re-stores-
We'll come forth from this tem-pest, stronger than be-fore.

I be-lieve in A-mer-i-ca
Our land where truth and free-dom reign
I be-lieve in A-mer-i-ca
I'll stand be-hind her name

Oh I be-lieve

I be-lieve in A-mer-i-ca
Our land where truth and free-dom reign
I be-lieve in A-mer-i-ca
I'll stand be-hind her name

I'll stand be-hind her name!
