Our Constitution Stands!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Our Constitution Stands!

Down under our great stars and stripes

and under our fallen men -

we continue to fight in ev'ry way,

preserving it all again.

 

Although foundation's truth is firm,

deception will always knock -

and tries to pry in every way

through its amendment's lock.

 

But there's no key to open it,

to thieve what still tarries there -

for it is safe, the truth's intent -

for everyone to share.

 

Down under the rule of politic

and ev'ry weapon's tool -

we challenge each deceptive cult

down under our court's firm rule.

 

We persevere deceptive bombs

that ev'ry last foe can throw -

for love and truth shall shadow us

wherever we may go.

 

So firmly on the rights of all

and ev'ry last liberty -

our great Creator gives to us

our freedoms faithfully.

 

Support, we do, each other here.

We never fight alone,

on nation's firm foundation,

which God has laid in stone.

 

With fond respect, defend we those,

on far and foreign sands -

but here in our own U-S-A,

our Constitution stands!

 

Down under our great stars and stripes

and under our fallen men -

we continue to fight in ev'ry way,

preserving it all again.
