God Bless America


God Bless America

Le God Bless America est une chanson patriotique américaine, composée par Irving Berlin en 1918 et souvent considérée comme l'hymne national officieux.

Depuis quelques années, c'est cette chanson qui résonne aux États-Unis, bien plus que le véritable hymne. Par exemple, la prestation de Céline Dion au lendemain des attentats du 11 septembre 2001 prouve bien que God bless America est désormais la chanson fédératrice américaine.[réf. nécessaire]

Paroles

Partie parlée :
While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer.
God bless America, land that I love,
Stand beside her, and guide her,
Through the night with a light from above,
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam,
God bless America, my home sweet home,
God bless America, land that I love,
Stand beside her, and guide her,
Through the night with a light from above,
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam,
God bless America, my home sweet home,
God bless America, my home sweet home!

Traduction

Partie parlée :
Alors que les nuages de l'orage s'assemblent au loin sur la mer
Jurons donc allégeance à un pays qui est libre
Soyons tous reconnaissants pour un pays si juste
Alors que nos voix s'élèvent dans une prière solennelle.
Que Dieu bénisse l'Amérique, terre que j'adore
Tiens toi à ses côtés, et guide là
À travers la nuit avec la lumière du ciel
Des montagnes aux prairies
Jusqu'aux océans, blancs d'écume
Que Dieu bénisse l'Amérique, mon doux foyer
Des montagnes aux prairies
Jusqu'aux océans, blancs d'écume
Que Dieu bénisse l'Amérique, mon doux foyer
Que Dieu bénisse l'Amérique, mon doux foyer !
