O beautiful for spacious skiesA
For amber waves of grainB
For purple mountain majestiesA
Above the fruited plainB
America AmericaC
God shed His grace on theeD
And crown thy good with brotherhoodE
From sea to shining seaD
-
O beautiful for pilgrim feetF
Whose stern impassioned stressA
A thoroughfare for freedom beatF
Across the wildernessA
America AmericaC
God mend thine every flawG
Confirm thy soul in self controlH
Thy liberty in lawG
-
O beautiful for heroes provedI
In liberating strifeJ
Who more than self their country lovedK
And mercy more than lifeJ
America AmericaC
May God thy gold refineL
Till all success be noblenessA
And every gain divineL
-
O beautiful for patriot dreamM
That sees beyond the yearsA
Thine alabaster cities gleamM
Undimmed by human tearsA
America AmericaC
God shed His grace on theeD
And crown thy good with brotherhoodE
From sea to shining seaD
