America the Beautiful

O beautiful for spacious skies for amber waves of grain
For purple mountains majesties above the fruited plain
America! America! God shed Her grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea.
O beautiful for pilgrim’s feet whose stern impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat across the wilderness
America! America! God mend thine every flaw
Confirm thy soul in self control, thy liberty in law.
O beautiful for working folk who forged the wealth we see
In farm and mill, in home & school, unsung in history
America! America! may race nor sex nor creed
No more divide, but side by side, transform the world, made free.
