Our Land


I wept for you, America
I wiped away a tear
I captioned you, I cradled you
I fought back inner fear

I can't begin to comprehend
All that this truly means
Like all your sons and daughters here
On you, our courage leans

Unspeakable our horror as
From bended knees we stand
To reclaim hope, to regain strength
To flourish in Our Land

All that they tried to take away
Will be forever near
A gift we will not ever lose
A liberty too dear

We're strong for you, America
As all of us unite
We Love You and we're here for you
Through each step of this plight

Unwavering devotion as
From bended knees we stand
To reclaim hope, to regain strength
To flourish in
OUR LAND
