American In Mind And Heart

A Patriotic Creed by Edgar Guest

To serve my country day by day At any humble post I may; To honor and respect her flag, To live the traits of which I brag; To be American in deed As well as in my printed creed.

To stand for truth and honest toil, To till my little patch of soil, And keep in mind the debt I owe To them who died that I might know My country, prosperous and free, And passed this heritage to me.

I always must in trouble’s hour Be guided by the men in power; For God and country I must live, My best for God and country give; No act of mine that men may scan must shame the name American.

To do my best and play my part, American in mind and heart; To serve the flag and bravely stand To guard the glory of my land; To be American in deed: God grant me strength to keep this creed!

HAVE A HAPPY AND SAFE 4th EVERYONE!
