This Song Should Be The American National Anthem (Hymns of Social Justice)

One of my favorite things to share as part of the Hymns of Social Justice series are covers of classic social justice anthems.

For Patriot Day, I want to share with you Christian rock artist David Crowder performing Woody Guthrie’s "This Land is Your Land."

Woody Guthrie presents to us in this song an aspirational vision of hope and longing for a more democratic America. He wrote it as a response to Irving Berlin’s "God Bless America,"

Today, Crowder’s rendition made me very emotional. Maybe it is 9/11. Maybe it is the cello. The cello gets me every time.

Take a listen. Enjoy. Share.

Thanks.
