America, One and Many

Chorus SATB or SS with Piano or Orchestra

 

Online score and recording links below.

Patriotic song, original words, by the composer of Lovelife Dances. Strong melody sounds as though it should be part of our heritage, but it is entirely original and strikingly unique.

A land of hope, 
    And a land of justice,
America, one and many.
    Your United States,
A nation great,
    When guided from above. 

We did not want or need a king,
    We let the bells of freedom ring;
And we fought and prayed,
    And we worked and played,
And we made the land we love. 

America, land of truth and honor,
America, one from many, 
Don't forget to teach your children
    Of the meaning of the name:
Teach them why the flag is raised;
Teach them how the Lord is praised;
Teach them star and plow,
Teach them then and now, 
    And the land we love will long remain. 

The mountain tops, the delta plains,
    When you first saw them,
Did you wear silk,
    Rags, 
            Or chains? 

It takes the proud, 
    And those who fall,
It takes our voices and our hearts,
    It takes our all.

America, land of hope and justice,
America, one and many.
    Your United States,
A nation great when guided from above. 

We did not want or need a king,
    We let the bells of freedom ring;
And we fought and prayed,
    And we worked and played,
And we made the land we love.
