Kate Smith God Bless America

Have you heard Kate Smith's God Bless America?

If not, you are missing out on a priceless piece of Americana history!

But don't fret - now that you've landed here, you have a golden opportunity to hear it for the first (or hundredth) time. I dare say that it's doubtful that listening to it will ever grow old.

On the heels of WWII, Irving Berlin decided to write a peaceful song....and this patriotic favorite is one of the most beautiful pieces of 4th of July Music that we love to sing.

Kate Smith sang God Bless America on the radio for the first time in 1938. I remember clearly hearing it broadcast in 1941.

Enjoy her heartwarming rendition of this amazing song.

God Bless America Lyrics

Although seldom heard or sung, God Bless America DOES have an introduction. Just before the main words are sung, we are introduced to "this solemn prayer"....

God Bless America
Land that I love
Stand beside her, and guide her
Through the night with a light from above
From the mountains
To the prairies
To the oceans white with foam
God Bless America
My home sweet home!
