TRIBUTE TO FREEDOM by Carolyn Kardinal
(Medley: God of Our Fathers, America the Beautiful, I Love Thy Way of
Freedom, America)


God of our fathers, whose almighty hand
Blesses and gives dominion unto man,
Oh, Thou, the light that heals humanity,
Send now Thy Truth that all men may be free!

O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties above the fruited plain,

America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea.

I love Thy way of freedom, Lord. To serve Thee is my choice.
In Thy clear light of Truth I rise and, listening for Thy voice,
I hear the promise old and new, that bids all fear to cease:
My presence still shall go with thee, and I will give thee peace.

God of our fathers, Guardian and Stay,
Thou, Love that guides our upward soaring way,
Thou, word of wisdom which inspires man,
Thy will be done across this hallowed land.

Our father’s God to Thee, author of liberty
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright with freedom’s holy light.
Protect us by Thy might great God, our King.

America! America! May God thy gold refine,
Till freedom’s ring to mankind bring
A brotherhood divine.
