lyrics

17. GOD BLESS AMERICA

CHORUS: God bless the land that gave us birth! No pray'r but this know we. God bless the land, of all the earth, The happy and the free. And where's the land like ours can brave The splendor of the day And find no son of hers a slave? God bless America!

GONZALES: Thirteen years ago I entered public service to make a positive difference in the lives of others. I have traveled a remarkable journey. Yesterday I informed the president of my decision to resign. I often remind our fellow citizens that we live in the greatest country in the world and I have lived the American dream. Even my worst days as attorney general have been better than my father's best days. Thank you, and God bless America.

CHORUS: God bless the land, the land beloved Forever and for aye! God bless the land that gave us birth. God bless America!
