America The Beautiful

Written by: Katharine Lee Bates in 1895 performed here by Alan Jackson

Oh, beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain!
For purple mountain majesty,
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 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.

And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea.
