If God Blessed America (What Would He Do?)
by Gregg Metcalf

Ever since that September day
all you see are signs that say
God Bless America
No one stops to realize
to take time to analyze
only God Bless America

It's heard on everybody's lips
no one stops to think, out it slips
God Bless America
Do they even think at all
is it just some empty call?
God Bless America

If God were to bless America
just what would He do?
Would He send angels from heaven
with the red, white, and blue?
Do you really think we deserve
anything since we are this way
If God were to bless America
tell me, what would He say?  

Would God wink at all our sin
and simply say forget it friend?
But God Bless America
Holiness and righteousness
are things that God will bless
God bless America

If God were to bless America
just what would He do?
Would He send angels from heaven
with the red, white, and blue?
Do you really think we deserve
anything since we are this way
If God were to bless America
tell me, what would He say? 
 
Or will we fall on our face
and repent in disgrace
God bless America
Do we think He won't care
and why do we even dare
to ask God bless America

If God were to bless America
just what would He do?
Would He send angels from heaven
with the red, white, and blue?
Do you really think we deserve
anything since we are this way
If God were to bless America
tell me, what would He say?
 
So, tell me, 
if God blessed America
what would He do?
