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.

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]
