America The Beautiful


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.

O, Beautiful for pilgrim's feet,
Whose stern, impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat,
Across the wilderness!
America! America! God mend thin every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

O, Beautiful, for heros proved,
In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life.
America! America, may God thy gold refine,
Till all success be nobleness,
And every gain devine.

O, Beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years,
Thine alabaster cities gleam,
Undimmed by human tears!
America! America! God shed his grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood,
From sea to shining sea.
