America (My Country 'Tis of Thee)

"America" (1832)
(aka "My Country 'Tis of Thee")
Words by Samuel Francis Smith, 1808-1895
Tune: anon., "God Save the King" (1744)
Arranged by Collin Coe (1884)

1.
My country, 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
  Of thee I sing;

CHORUS
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrim's pride,
From ev'ry mountain side
  Let freedom ring!

2.
My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
  Thy name I love;

CHORUS
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills,
My heart with rapture thrills,
  Like that above.

3.
Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees
  Sweet freedom's song;

CHORUS
Let mortal tongues awake,
Let all that breathe partake,
Let rocks their silence break,
  The sound prolong.

4.
Our father's God! to thee,
Author of liberty,
  To thee we sing;

CHORUS
Long my our land be bright
With freedom's holy light;
Protect us by thy might,
  Great God, our king!
