    Dear America (A National Anthem for Unity)

    Dear America, the sea still shines
    We raise our flags and banners high
    Freedom rings from every mountainside
    You’re still majestic and we have faith
    God still gives grace to make us great
    There’s beauty still beneath our spacious skies

    CHORUS:
    Oh America, the place we live
    The air we breathe, the hands we give
    The very things that make us who we are
    To America, red, white and blue
    The place we work, the lives we choose
    Dear America, we sing this song for you

    For courageous ones who risk it all
    Who take a stand or take a fall
    We recognize the sacrifice it takes
    Leaving those behind who need you most
    You give in ways that no one knows
    Heroically defending still today

    With the citizens of this home of mine
    We’re strong and brave, now is our time
    To reconcile and step across the lines
    See, I need you and you need me
    If we’re gonna hang on to liberty
    So let’s pledge to live together side by side

    Dear America, we sing this song for you
