O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
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 heroes proved
In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life!
America! America!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine!

O beautiful for men of faith
Who founded this great land;
Proclaimed for us "In God we trust,"
And held to God's strong hand.
America! America!
God shed His grace on thee
Till lives confess His righteousness
From sea to shining sea!
