Defenders of the World

Updated on January 26, 2017


The ships that all sail the ocean's wide and of every Navy Man,

Each soldier at home and around the world, all do take a stand.

Airmen, and pilots who fly the skies, to help keep us safe always,

Our National Guard, the coastguard, too, all deserve our praise.


Refrain:

Stand up and salute our defenders, uphold our freedoms, all so true,

They'll save this world, with our flag unfurled, the red, white and blue.



Our military forces are great, all serving the people around this world,

We change the wrongs to make them rights, as our banner is unfurled.

Defenders of the meek and the small, we shall never give in to tyranny,

We'll help clothe the poor and feed the hungry, our goal, to set them free.


Refrain:

Stand up and salute our defenders, uphold our freedoms. all so true,

They'll save this world with our flag unfurled, the red, white, and blue.



When duty does call, they'll give their all, each woman, and every man,

Soldiers of goodness, their blood, sweat and tears, is ours to understand.

All uniforms to represent the ones, the bravest who gave up their lives,

Withstood demands and weathered storms, that democracy so thrives.


Refrain:

Stand up and salute our defenders, uphold our freedoms, all so true,

They'll save this world, with our flag unfurled, the red, white and blue.



The fate of this world, is in their hands, of every man, woman and child,

They defeat the enemy, to put down demands, restore a peace so mild.

The enemy does fear when we are near, our defenders, as they should,

On them we depend, as our God does send, greatest power for all good.


Refrain:

Stand up and salute our defenders, to uphold our freedoms. all so true,

They will save this world, with our flag unfurled, the red, white, and blue
