America, the Beautiful



Letra por Katharine Lee Bates,
Melodía por Samuel Ward

O beautiful for spacious skies,


For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!

America! America!


God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for pilgrim feet


Whose stern impassion'd stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness.

America! America!


God mend thine ev'ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law.

O beautiful for heroes prov'd


In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life.

America! America!


May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev'ry gain divine.

O beautiful for patriot dream


That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears.

America! America!


God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea.
