~Sweet Land of Liberty~

 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 mountainside
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 break,
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.
