beauty that words cannot recall

Here is a land full of power and glory,
Beauty that words cannot recall,
Oh her power shall rest on the strength of her freedom,
Her glory shall rest on us all.

  • Phil Ochs - "The Power and the Glory"

For some reason, this gave me goosebumps.

This is on my husband's iPod, and when I hear it I always tear up. I swear, it's probably the most responsibly patriotic song I know.

Some on the NMS subscription list suggestion that Power and Glory should be the nation's new National anthem. I saw the Limeliters sing Power and Glory at the National Phil Ochs Tribute at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
