This song video, “Mother of America," was composed in 2001 on Sept. 14th, the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. The United States of America did not have a national song to the Immaculate Conception, the patroness of our country like many other countries such as Fátima, Portugal and Lourdes, France.
We used the 3rd verse and the chorus to make this video. The complete song can be found on our CD, “Mother of America.”
It was especially important to us to compose this song to our Blessed Mother as our nation had just suffered from the attack upon our citizens on 9.11.2001 in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. It was a time of great sorrow and fear of the future for everyone as the whole country came to a ‘STOP.’
We need to pray to our Lord, Father, Son and Holy Spirit in these catastrophic times, then and now. Our Blessed Mother will come to comfort and console us but also help us to turn to our God if we have strayed. Prayer will see us through all difficulties and sadness as well as joys and peace. But we have the choice to pray and repent as a nation. “Let us stand together, one Nation, one Nation under God!
Mother of America
Music and Lyrics by
Maria C. French & Gloria E. Giannuzzi
1. America, the beautiful, my country ‘tis of Thee,
God blessed America, our home, the land of the brave and free.
The Mother of America, the Immaculate Conception,
Prays for her suffering children in peace and tribulation.
Let us stand together, One nation,
One nation under God.
In peace and tribulation
With faith and hope and love of God.
2. Attacked in peace with unbelief and lies that seem the truth
That draw us away from Life Itself to the way of sin and death.
But the Mother of America, The mirror of the Just,
Teaches her children Wisdom That in God we trust. (Chorus)
3. In tribulation we’re attacked with violence and hate.
Yet in the womb and until death the violence is the same.
But the Mother of America, Who before God’s Throne she stands,
Weeps for the Holy Innocents and children of her land. (Chorus)
