I am a partisan
A very proud partisan
Firm in my convictions
Unswaying in my beliefs
Isn't that a good thing?

But I do compromise
When the need calls
For the betterment of all
Especially for America
Isn't that a good thing?

I'm partisan to the right
Like Limbaugh and Reagan
Some are to the left
Like Obama and Clinton
The bi's are in the middle
Like Collins and McCain
There's a place for everyone
Isn't that a good thing?

I could move to the middle
And sell out my convictions
Turn my back on the Lord
Just to get along with others
And so could everyone else
A bi-partisan unity
We could all sing Kum-ba-ya
Spread peace, love and joy
Wouldn't that be a good thing?


I won't sell out my Lord
I won't ignore my convictions
I can't move to the middle
Just to get along with others
I'm a proud partisan
At peace with my beliefs
In tune with my God
Happy with the life He's provided
And I love you all nevertheless
Isn't that a good thing?

They Stand Tall

They stand tall at the gate
Protecting all inside
Alert, eyes open wide
Attentively they wait
They will not hesitate
Their mission cut-and-dried

They answered freedom’s call
Put selfish needs on hold
United, strong and bold
They stand tall for us all
They stand as freedom’s wall
America’s stronghold

They sacrifice for right
They keep lit freedom’s light

Life, Liberty and the Lord

“O beautiful, for patriot dream
That sees, beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam,
Undimmed by human tears
America! America!
God shed His grace on thee.
And crown thy good
With brotherhood
From sea to shining sea.”

America the Beautiful
Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory
My Country, ‘Tis of Thee
God Bless America
The Star-Spangled Banner
God Bless the USA

A country grounded in freedom
A nation of liberty
A beacon on a hill
Blessed by God
