Lyrics:

What is courage? What is honor?
Are these words or just ideas long forgotten?
What is duty? What is glory?
Are they just written down in some old story?
When we hear the words like freedom
Do we know what it really means?
Or do we take it all for granted
Living like kings and queens?

We are blessed to live in freedom,
Blessed to live in peace.
Blessed with food and shelter,
Blessed with a life of (ease?)
Blessed to gather freely,
Blessed to have a voice.
Blessed that someone bravely fought
So that we can have a choice.
We are blessed,
Oh we are blessed.

Is faith a notion or fear of hell?
Or have we lost our faith in faith itself?
Is it our rock or is it madness?
Or do we cling to it like rain in times
Is sadness?
It is easy to remember, but easy to forget the duty of our country
And the simple gifts we get
‘Cause we are blessed.
