America The Beautiful
Written by Katharine Lee Bates in 1893
Inspired by her visit to the mountaintop of Pikes Peak
Colorado Springs

O Beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountains 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 impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
America!  America!
God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self control
Thy liberty in law!

O Beautiful for heroes proved
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 every 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!
