Restore our Nation

In years gone by I hung around the bar ’til late at night
We’d drink our beer and hard stuff until the mood was right
Then we’d drive around the countryside until the morning light
Not caring about anything at all

But those days have been replaced by my faith in Jesus Christ
Now I linger at the altar as I seek His guiding light
My soul seeks His assurance when I go to sleep at night
My desire is to heed His sacred call

Put aside your earthly habits to come and join the fight
To restore our nations heart and set it’s morals right
Seek the Lord and all His wisdom so that all will see the light
Before our nation suffers from a fall

Our Salute

We celebrate our soldiers
Who proudly serve this land
Protecting all our freedoms
From distant enemy plans

We celebrate our warriors
Who proudly risk their lives
To go to foreign countries
Helping nations to survive

Americans rise up and shout
Give honor to our troops
They give their lives
With humble pride
Let’s give them our salute

We celebrate the army
On ground they fight our foes
We celebrate marines
Where trouble is they go

We celebrate the air force
In sky they have no match
We celebrate the navy
In sea they wait attacks

Americans rise up and shout
Give honor to our troops
They give their lives
With humble pride
Let’s give them our salute

We celebrate the coast guard
Day and night protect our shores
We celebrate the national guard
In our land they reward

We celebrate our veterans
Who have served with pride
They gave their better years to us
We owe them each our lives

Americans rise up and shout
Give honor to our troops
They give their lives
With humble pride
Let’s give them our salute

We celebrate the fallen
Who have given everything
To protect this greatest country
The world has ever seen

Americans rise up and shout
Give honor to our troops
They give their lives
With humble pride
Let’s give them our salute

Day to Give Honor

Today I honor those who served
To bring us liberty
The warrior’s whO gave their time
To make thus country free

Throughout the years they fought and died
Always victorious
The strongest and the bravest force
Of soldiers glorious

They sacrificed their lives and health
To keep our children safe
Many are stuck in bodies worn
From pain there’s no escape

Our veterans deserve our praise
For sacrifices made
Without their sweat and blood spilt out
Our country would soon fade

Those serving now in countries far
Need every single prayer
They face our enemies for us
Our country’s hope they bear

So on this Independence Day
Take time to honor them
By flying flags and lifting prayers
For women and for men
Who give their all to keep us free
God bless America
