ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
America. It’s the most beautiful and greatest nation in the world. Shining seas. Majestic mountain ranges. Spacious skies. Freedom to chase our dreams. And freedom to love and worship our God.

Our nation’s current political divide led me and my co-writer, Martha Christian, to write somewhat of an “open letter” to America, a National Anthem for Unity.

Unity, I’m convinced, starts with thankfulness. Thankfulness to God for His great favor and grace. And thankfulness to the men and women who have served bravely for our freedom and security.

“See, I need you and you need me if we’re gonna hang on to liberty.” That lyric pretty much sums it up. We need each other for liberty’s sake.

I pray that these lyrics inspire unity and renewed thankfulness. Stars and stripes – red, white and blue – are the fabric by which we live. Dear America, we sing this song for you.

Performance tracks available at most online music stores.

Song Lyrics:

“Dear America (A National Anthem for Unity)”
©2016 Darla Day / Martha Christian

Dear America, the sea still shines
We raise our flags and banners high
Freedom rings from every mountainside
You’re still majestic and we have faith
God still gives grace to make us great
There’s beauty still beneath our spacious skies

CHORUS:
Oh America, the place we live
The air we breathe, the hands we give
The very things that make us who we are
To America, red, white and blue
The place we work, the lives we choose
Dear America, we sing this song for you

For courageous ones who risk it all
Who take a stand or take a fall
We recognize the sacrifice it takes
Leaving those behind who need you most
You give in ways that no one knows
Heroically defending still today

With the citizens of this home of mine
We’re strong and brave, now is our time
To reconcile and step across the lines
See, I need you and you need me
If we’re gonna hang on to liberty
So let’s pledge to live together side by side

Dear America, we sing this song for you
