Lyrics
There's a beacon of light that shines across the world tonight It's the beacon of freedom And it's leading scores and scores to America's welcome shores It's the beacon of freedom They're coming here from over there From nations nearly everywhere A human tide with no end They long to be where they'll be free In a land where they'll be greeted as a friend CHORUS: America, the beacon of freedom With open arms for every race and creed They come to where our light will lead them Where freedom is a living thing in word as well as deed America, America, the beacon of freedom There's a cadre of hate that claims they will not tolerate The beacon of freedom They try exporting fear and vow to bring it over here To the beacon of freedom They live to hate, that's all they know A cancer that appears to grow They're doomed to fail in the end We'll win the war for hearts and minds That's the bottom line, on that we can depend CHORUS: BRIDGE: We have freedom of speech, freedom of the press Any grievance we have, we have the right to redress We have the freedom of religion, freedom from fear That's why we are the beacon for those millions coming over here CHORUS: America, America, America, America, America, the beacon of freedom America, America, America, America, America, the beacon of freedom
