America's Resolve

America's Resolve

How could they think that we could be destroyed

This nation brought together 's stronger now

We grieve for those now gone but we are buoyed

To move ahead, to them we've made this vow

To search for evil persons far away

Who sought to maim and kill democracy

And from this path we know we must not stray

To keep our country safe for you and me

We feel great pain and anger fills our heart

But we must keep our minds now clear and free

To follow courses that will be a part

Of plans to carry out across the sea

From ashes and destruction now widespread

We all resolve together we will stand

Against all forces which are evil led

We wish to live in peace in this great land.
