Representative Text

1 America, beloved, of thee our song shall be;
Thy name we love
All lands above,
Dear home of liberty;
Thy flag is freedom’s emblem, and where it is unfurled,
Mankind in thee,
Dear land, shall see
The homeland of the world.

Refrain:
Oh, homeland dear,
Oh, homeland fair,
The land of pilgrim quest;
America, beloved,
Of ev’ry land the best.

2 America, beloved,, where freedom’s altar fires
So soon became
A kindling flame,
Which ev’ry land inspires;
Thy lifted banner floating, as freedom’s fair design,
Has led the way
Until today,
Thy shores are freedom’s shrine. [Refrain]

3 America, beloved, we lift for thee a pray’r;
On bended knee
We plead for thee,
And for thy banner fair;
Today so proudly waving o’er valley, hill and plain,
That it may stand
To ev’ry land
A flag without a stain. [Refrain]
