2nd Inaugural of Pres. Reagan - God Called U.S. to Pass the Dream On to the World

In Ronald Reagan's Second Inaugural address (1985), he said:

"God bless you and welcome back.
"One people under God determined that our future shall be worthy of our past.
"My friends, together we can do this, and do it we must, so help me God.
"There is no story more heartening in our history than the progress that we have made toward the "brotherhood of man" that God intended for us.
"It is the American sound. It is hopeful, big-hearted, idealistic, daring, decent, and fair. That's our heritage; that is our song. We sing it still. For all our problems, our differences, we are together as of old, as we raise our voices to the God who is the Author of this most tender music. And may He continue to hold us close as we fill the world with our sound—sound in unity, affection, and love—one people under God, dedicated to the dream of freedom that He has placed in the human heart, called upon now to pass that dream on to a waiting and hopeful world.
"God bless you and may God bless America."
