oh say can you see

oh say can you see
beyond the color
and beliefs
and ways of life

beyond the shining sea
and fruited plains
to the dream
coming true?

a place where
all are truly equal
and can live true to themselves
without hurting others

a place where
life is valued
and kindness and justice reign
and people are free to be brave

a place where
land and trees
and wildlife
are cared for
and respected

a place where
no child goes
or cries out from pain

a place where
all work together
for the good
despite their differences

oh say can you see
as the light of dawn brings hope,
the dream coming true
