UNITED STATES HISTORY

America (My Country ’Tis of Thee)

First sung in public on July 4, 1831, at a service in the Park Street Church,
Boston, the words were written by Rev. Samuel Francis Smith, a Baptist clergyman,
who set them to a melody he found in a German songbook,
unaware that it was the tune for the British anthem,
“God Save the King/Queen.”




~~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!

My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love.
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture thrills
Like that above.

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,
The sound prolong.

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!
