In the land of milk and honey
where God's blessings always flow
Our beloved friend and leader
Sent by God to Earth below!

Whom I pray be much protected by the angels from on high
given Holy inspiration from God's spirit in the sky
with divine and wondrous wisdom
for to lead this land below
So our blessed Holy Father
Can direct how we should go!

In a land preserved by freedom
from the hand of God above
A most Holy divine presence
For the nation that I love!

Oh, I praise you Holy Father for your gift of Christ to me
In this land of hope and freedom
going from the sea to sea
Shining brightly like a city
Sitting on a blessed hill
saying, send me those men longing
for to always seek God's will

From the Earthly sad opression
that the devil sends to me
For the devil can not conquer
Those who fully trust in he-(God)

Can't you sense the hand so loving
giving all the rights in law?
for a humble group of people
that our Father truly saw

Saying, I will never leave you
And in this you can be sure
That a nation based on freedom
Will eternally endure!

Nicely worded Marty. May be the first religious/political song I've ever seen.

I hope my brother in music, Owen Hovenden, will see this song and give us all his comments on it! :D

I don't share your positive view of your current president, but that aside I think this song is well written.

It reads very smoothly and there is a stirring, patriotic quality to it. Has more of a Gospel feel to it than Country, I think, but there's nothing wrong with that!

I particularly liked:
Can't you sense the hand so loving
giving all the rights in law?


Nicely done, Marty! :)
