Story behind the song
My dad was walking to church on the Sunday morning after 911. He looked across to the US and God gave him these words. "America, as I stand afar and look at Thee this day, I see a nation resolute determined now to pray...." when he showed me the poem God gave me the music. I have many American friends whom I love.
