Tribute to God on America's 200th Birthday (written by Arlys Schiesser, 5/13/76) America owes you a tribute for these past 200 years, You've been with us through everything - tears, joys and fears. You've led us from the wagon trains, to jets soaring high. You've bro't us from the prairie sod houses to scrapers towering in the sky. You've seen us through two world wars, but victory was not without scars. The many men who fought and died helped make America truly ours. You've been with us through thick and thin, Your powers never lack; You even sent men to the moon, and bro't them safely back. Without your love and guidance, America could not survive. Our shots continue loud and clear - "Our God is still alive!" And so America let's bend a knee, to our God the only King. Let's show Him that we care enough, and let our praises ring like the emblematic Liberty Bell that rings throughout our Land; Showing us - Dear God, You've always had the Upper hand.
