'America, the Beautiful' - Glenn narrates & explains the classic patriotic song

Many of you have heard that Glenn is known for playing music in the morning before going on air. His music can range "from Muse to Rachmaninoff, from opera to Patsy Cline." This morning Glenn turned on the Millennial Choir and listened to their rendition of "America, the Beautiful." As Glenn was listening to the words and this particular arrangment of the song, the "sense of loss" stuck out to him and he began to wonder "is this a plea, a prayer, or a simple statement?"

Listen to Glenn's narration of the Millennial Choir's rendition of "America, the Beautiful."

Rough Transcript Below:

GLENN: America, God shed his grace on thee, is that a plea? Is that a prayer? Or is it a statement? The beginning of the song, they're just talking about the land. And I think it's a statement. America, look what God has done! He has preserved this land for something great. He's shed his grace here. Now it's up to you. What are you going to do with it? That was the question for the Pilgrims. Would it be gold or would it be God? Hatred, bigotry, or love?

Hand in hand with the Native Americans, our Pilgrims beat a path of freedom with their plowshares of self-control, righteousness, determination, hard work, and faith.

[Music playing]

GLENN: This is where the song becomes the Pilgrim's simple, stern prayer: May God mend thine every flaw and confirm thy soul in self-control. They knew we would be flawed. They knew we would lose our self-control. And they knew that sacrifice would be needed. And a new generation would rise to answer that call.

[Music playing]

GLENN: I think this is where it becomes a plea, almost a warning, success is going to be hard. You're going to lose your way, America. May God let gold refine. To all success be nobleness, and every gain divine. You have to look back to find out where we came from to know where you're going. It's a prayer from the hero generation to us. The hero generation crying out, telling us, who exactly we must be again.

[Music playing]

GLENN: We are the patriots that now must see beyond the years, the fears, and the human tears. It's a statement. God shed his grace on thee. A plea. Crown thy good with brotherhood. Unite. And a prayer. Unite from sea to shining sea.

America, it is up to us. Now is our time. He has done his job. And he has seen that it is good.

[Music playing]

GLENN: Now is the time that we must awaken and unite with a renewed sense of brotherhood throughout the land.

[Music playing]

GLENN: It will and must be us that renews the American dream. That is my prayer.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
