Americans in Strength:
Americans in strength uniteThis union born in freedom’s light
United States, how sure we areWe’ll pull together, near and far
The world can see of what we’re madeEach state is of the highest grade
Determination, filled with prideOur people’s will won’t be denied
Our founding fathers set to stayThe road we’ve traveled to this day
A quest for right cannot be wrongWith help from God, we will stay strong
Support our troops ranks number oneFor the job they do is never done
When forced they put it on the lineTrue patriots, when called they shine
Let’s raise Old Glory with a cheerAnd thank all soldiers, past and here
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.
Our fathers’ God, to thee,
Author of liberty,
To thee I sing;
Long may our land be bright
With freedom’s holy light;
Protect us by thy might,
Great God our King.
Samuel Francis Smith
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
(Maestro & Maestro, 1987)
