Patriotic American Poems

The Lighthouse

by William A Predeau

This wonderful country America
Known as the land of the free,
Is the lighthouse of hope for many
And shines for the world to see

This light has shone over 200 years
and brought many people to this land
to enjoy the freedoms of liberty
and build a new life with their hands

This Lighthouse of Hope is threatened
From those who would extinguish this light
but as long as we stand together
It will always and forever burn bright

Remember our people in uniform
Who face this enemy each day
So our wonderful light of freedom
Will continue to show the way

Pray for our military around the world
That they’ll come safely home
And always stand proudly with them
For never should they stand alone
