We live in a land of plenty,
Practitioners of pleasure,
Blessed to be where we are,
Blessed to be in America!

Lord, fill us with laughter,
Fill us with laughter and longing!
Of all with which we are blessed,
You are our greatest blessing!

We live in a land of profusion,
Denizens of desire,
Blessed to be where we are,
Blessed to be in America!

Lord, fill us with glory,
Fill us with glory and love!
Of all with which we are blessed,
You are our greatest blessing!

For we have been chosen for freedom,
A light unto the world,
A shining light to all peoples!
And we have been given great wealth,
The bank and the engine of progress,
To lift up the lives of all peoples!

We live in a land of change,
Guardians of the future,
Blessed to be where we are,
Blessed to be in America!

Lord, fill us with wisdom,
Fill us with wisdom and passion!
Of all with which we are blessed,
You are our greatest blessing!

Lift us up, O Lord,
That freedom might spread and prosper.
Lift us up, O Lord,
That we might be a beacon,
A bright and shining beacon
By which all the world might find peace.
