Patriotic Hymns of Faith 7: “I Pledge My Allegiance”

Patriotic Hymns of Faith Day 7 – “I Pledge My Allegiance” by Bill and Gloria Gaither

Today’s patriotic hymn of faith is another Bill and Gloria Gaither classic from the early 2000s. To introduce the song lyrics, I would like to include an excerpt from Something Beautiful by Gloria Gaither:

“This nation will endure as long as we as private citizens are dissatisfied with ourselves because there is someone going hungry or destitute, or there are families without a place to belong, or there are children being abused who have not been rescued or women being used and abandoned. 

“As long as each of us believes that we are the answer to the problems we face as a nation, that there is no faceless “they” on whom we can blame our issues, we still can pursue the great dream of ‘one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.’”

“I Pledge My Allegiance”

In a mid-western town, children form a parade,
With the flag bearer leading the way.
Farmers and teachers, the old and the young,
Lift together their voices to say:

I pledge my allegiance to the grand old flag,
And the promise of hope from sea to sea.
Under God, one nation, undivided we will stand.
Lift the banner of liberty.

It’s the final kickoff for the NFL,
And the stadium is packed with screaming fans.
All the banners are flying, the color guards advance;
Like a wave silence moves through the stands.

I pledge my allegiance to the grand old flag,
And the promise of hope from sea to sea.
Under God, one nation, undivided we will stand.
Lift the banner of liberty.
Where a child is hungry, where men have no homes,
Where the powerless are yearning to breathe free,
May we fight for justice till there’s justice for all,
And become what God meant us to be.

I pledge my allegiance to the grand old flag,
And the promise of hope from sea to sea.
Under God, one nation, undivided we will stand.
Lift the banner of liberty.
Under God, one nation, undivided we will stand.
Lift the banner of liberty.
