The following are resources available to those, who wish to draw on them at Norwich Lions Club meetings.

Norwich Lions Toast 

(Underlined word not in the e-District files version)

Not above you 
Not beneath you 
But always with you 

Lions Grace 

(from the e-District files)

Lord we thank you for the food we are about to receive.
And as we all gather here this evening,
We pause to offer up this prayer:
Where Lions meet be present Lord,
To weld our hearts in one accord,
To do thy will, Lord, make us strong,
To aid the weak, and right the wrong.


America the Beautiful

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

My Country, ‘Tis of Thee

My country, ’tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims’ pride,
From ev’ry mountainside
Let freedom ring!

Star Spangled Banner 

Oh, say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming, 
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming. 
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. 
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave. 

We Shall Overcome

We shall overcome
We shall overcome
We shall overcome some day
Oh, deep in my heart
I do believe
We shall overcome some day
