represent the USA?

america my country tis of thee
America: My Country ‘TIS of Thee
  • My country, 'tis of Thee,Sweet Land of LibertyOf thee I sing;Land where my fathers died,Land of the pilgrims' pride,From every mountain sideLet 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 thrillsLike that above.
  • ***
  • Let music swell the breeze,And ring from all the treesSweet Freedom's song;Let mortal tongues awake;Let all that breathe partake;Let rocks their silence break,The sound prolong.
  • ***
  • Our fathers' God to Thee,Author of Liberty,To thee we sing,Long may our land be brightWith Freedom's holy light,Protect us by thy mightGreat God, our King.
  • Our glorious Land to-day,'Neath Education's sway,Soars upward still.Its hills of learning fair,Whose bounties all may share,Behold them everywhereOn vale and hill!
  • ***
  • Thy safeguard, Liberty,The school shall ever be,Our Nation's pride!No tyrant hand shall smite,While with encircling mightAll here are taught the RightWith Truth allied.
  • ***
  • Beneath Heaven's gracious willThe stars of progress stillOur course do sway;In unity sublimeTo broader heights we climb,Triumphant over Time,God speeds our way!
  • ***
  • Grand birthright of our sires,Our altars and our firesKeep we still pure!Our starry flag unfurled,The hope of all the world,In peace and light impearled,God hold secure!
