~~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 feet
Whose stern impassion’d stress
A thorough-fare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness.



America! America!
God mend thine ev’ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self control,
Thy liberty in law.



O beautiful for heroes prov’d
In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country lov’d
And mercy more than life.



America! America!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev’ry gain divine.



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.

Words composed by Katharine Lee Bates, a Massachusetts educator and author,
in 1893, inspired by the view she experienced atop Pikes Peak.
The final form was established in 1911, and it is set to the music
of Samuel A. Ward’s “Materna.”
