Oh, 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 brother-hood from sea to shining sea.

Oh, beautiful for pilgrim feet, whose stern, impassioned stress

A thorough-fare of freedom beat across the wilderness!

America! America! God mend thine ev'ry flaw

Confirm thy soul in self-control, thy liberty in law.

Oh, beautiful for heroes proved in liberating strife,

Who more than self their country loves, and mercy more than life!

America! America! May God thy gold refine,

Till all success be nobleness, and ev'ry gain divine.

Oh, 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 brother-hood from sea to shining sea.
