Blessed Is the Nation

NOVEMBER 11TH, 2020      |      A Veterans Day National Ceremony is held each year on November 11 at Arlington National Cemetery with a wreath laying at the Tomb of the Unknowns. On this special day in the United States, the song lyrics of “America the Beautiful” seem appropriate to share—feel free to sing along!

O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain, for purple mountain majesties above the fruited plain! America! America! God shed His grace on thee and crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for heroes proved in liberating strife, who more than self their country loved and mercy more than life! America! America! May God thy gold refine, till all success be nobleness, and every gain divine!

O beautiful for patriot dream that sees beyond the years, thine alabaster cities gleam undimmed by human tears. America! America! God shed His grace on thee and crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea!

Blessed Is the Nation

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.

Lord, thank You for the brave men and women who have fought and fight for freedom in this one nation under God with liberty and justice for all.

Jesus, thank You for giving Yourself for our eternal freedom now and forevermore.
