UNDER GOD

Sue C. Smith & Phil Johnson

Half a century ago
Two simple words
Declared a truth that’s planted in our hearts
And every time the flag is raised
We’ve been honored to repeat the phrase
So the world will know we are

Under God
America’s been blessed
Under God
Brought through every trial and test
We are sheltered by the mercy He chose to give
In privilege and abundance this nation lives
Under God
Freedom has survived
Under God
We need to recognize
We’re dependent on His goodness
Indebted to His care
Maybe more than any people
Any time or anywhere
Still our only hope and prayer
Is Under God

When we pledge allegiance now
It's under God
Those words have shaped the land that we hold dear
Some insist it's not allowed
To acknowledge that we need Him now
But It has never been so clear

Under God
America’s been blessed
Under God
Brought through every trial and test
We are sheltered by the mercy He chose to give
In privilege and abundance this nation lives
Under God
Freedom has survived
Under God
We need to recognize
We’re dependent on His goodness
Indebted to His care
Maybe more than any people
Any time or anywhere
Still our only hope and prayer
Is Under God

  2. I've never seen the sheet music for it, but my recommendation would be to contact the Booth Brothers through their main website and ask about it. They are great guys and would be happy to steer you in the right direction if they can.
