My country, 'tis of thee, Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing; Land where my fathers died; Land of the pilgrim's pride; From ev'ry 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,
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.
--Samuel Francis Smith.
