8 SONGS OF THE SOLDIERS AND SAILORS.
2. AMERICA.
My country, 'tis of thee, Sweet land of liberty,.
Of thee I sing: Land where my fathers died I Land of the pilgrims' pride! ; From ev'ry 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 breakó
The sound prolong.
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!
