Hymn to America

My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty
Of thee I sing!
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrim's pride
From every mountainside
Let freedom ring!

Our fathers' God to thee,
Author of liberty
To thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright
With freedom's holy light,
Protect us by thy might,
Great God our King.

Oh thus be it ever when free men shall stand
Between their loved homes
And the war's desolation!
Blessed with victory and peace
May the heaven rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made
And preserved us a nation.

Then conquer we must,
When our cause it is just,
And this be our motto
"In God is our trust."

Let music swell the breeze
And ring from all the trees
Sweet freedom's song.
Let mortal tongues awake
Let all that breathe partake,
Let rocks their silence break
"God is our trust!"

And the star spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O're the land of the free
And the home of the brave!
