" Land of The Free "

( Because of the BRAVE )


I will fight to be ... free,
If I die ...
(I pledge allegiance to the Flag)
Remember me.
If I fall ...
(Of the United States of America)
Along the way ...
Take my hand,
(And, to the Republic for which it stands)
Help me stand.

If I dream ... beyond the stars,
(One Nation)
If I reach ...
(UNDER GOD ... indivisible)
Where you are,
Take my hand ... help me stand,
(With Liberty)
In the ... (And, Justice for ALL)
"Land of the Free!"

(Oh, say can you see - Trumpet Echo)

I will fight to be ... free,
If I die ... remember me.
If I fall along the way ...
Take my hand, help me stand.

If I dream ... beyond the stars,
If I reach ... where you are
Take my hand ... help me stand,
In this ... "Land of the Free!"

(My eyes have seen the Glory
of the coming of the Lord - Trumpet Echo)

* * * *

We're the ... "Home of the Brave"
Sons & daughters who gave ... sacrificed for Liberty
We know "Freedom ... is NEVER free!"

(Taps - Trumpet Echo)

We're the one's ... they've left behind,
With broken hearts ... filled with Pride.
Take my hand ... help me stand,
In this ... "Land of the Free!"

(Glory, Glory Hallelujah)

* * * *

I will NOT ... forget you,
I WILL ... Honor & Remember!
I WILL stand beside your brothers ... and, sisters
We will NOT ... surrender.


We WILL live our lives ... in Freedom,
We will NOT forget ... YOU, are the reason.
We will teach the future generations,
The Love of God, and, Family, Faith & Freedom across this land !

(Oh Beautiful ... Trumpet Echo)

* * * *

We're the ..."Land of the Free"
It's "Because of the BRAVE"
Sacrificed ... for Liberty
We know "Freedom ... is NEVER free!"

(Taps - Trumpet Echo)

We're the one's ... they've left behind,
To carry on ... filled with Pride,
Take my hand ... let us stand,
In this ... "Land of the Free!"

(Glory, Glory Hallelujah - Trumpet Echo)
