Hymn to America
W. C. LANGDON
BROOKS C. PETERS
Copyright byW C. Langdon and B.C. Peters 1912 and 1915
2.
In thee unite the sovereign States!
In thee all trade and commerce live! To all thou openest wide thy gates: To all thy. name and thy life dost give!
3.
The little child thou dost protect;
The strongest man for his work inspire! The wayward firmly dost correct; v And guard our homes from flood and fire!
Thy name we share from south to north!
Thine air we breathe from east to west! Thy glory, America, leads us forth
In victory onwards toward the best!
5.
0 God, Who givest the breath'of Life
To peoples of the human race, Make Thou our Land, in peace or strife, A Nation strong, of up-lifted face!
