Lyrics

Intro

From the moment the first adventurers
Set foot on America’s eastern shores
A dream was born
It drew those who believed in freedom
And inspired those who imagined
That a people could govern themselves
Through the years the dream
Has been challenged by tyrants

Intro

Torn and tested by war and economic
Hardship and threatened by terrorists
But with God’s help somehow
The American dream has survived

Verse 1

How beautiful the thought
That was conceived
A country built on freedom
Land of liberty
Simply by the goodness
Of our Lord
A place of endless promise
Waiting on these shores

Chorus

The dream goes on
The dream goes on
In these days the dream burns
Ever brighter with each dawn
A beacon to the nations
Triumphant and so strong
The dream is called America
And the dream goes on

Verse 2

There are those who wish
The dream would cease
Lands despising freedom
Enemies of peace
They rise to challenge
These United States
They underestimate us
And when a new day breaks

Chorus

The dream goes on
The dream goes on
In these days the dream burns
Ever brighter with each dawn
A beacon to the nations
Triumphant and so strong
The dream is called America
And the dream goes on

Bridge

O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears

Refrain

America America
God shed His grace
On the
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea

Chorus

The dream goes on
The dream goes on
In these days the dream burns
Ever brighter with each dawn
A beacon to the nations
Triumphant and so strong
The dream is called America
And the dream goes on

Outro

The dream goes on
