427. My country, 'tis of thee

6.6.4.6.6.6.4

America:

Harmonia Anglicana, c. 1742

Samuel F. Smith, 1832

My country, 'tis of thee,

Sweet land of liberty,

Of thee I sing;

Land where my fathers died,

Land of the pilgrims' pride,

From every mountain side

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.

389

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.

Amen.
