VP_018701 Verse 1O 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! Verse 2O 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! Verse 3O 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 nobless, And ev'ry gain divine! Verse 4O beautiful for patriot dream That sees beyond the years Thine alabaster cities gleam, Undimm'd by human tears! America! America! God shed His grace on thee And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea!
