Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

God bless our free America

Representative Text

1 God bless our free America, the freeman’s pride and boast;
Where Liberty reigns o’er the land and fearless leads her host.
From North to South and East to West we sing bright Freedom’s song—
God bless America the free, Her praises loud prolong.

2 From hill and dale we sing “All hail” to earth’s oncoming host,
And welcome give to all who come true patriots to our coast.
Then sound the clarion trumpet cry above th’advancing throng—
God bless America the free, Her praises loud prolong.

3 The Stars and Stripes, our emblem bright, sweet liberty shall wave
Till ev’ry land sees Freedom’s sign emblazoned there to save.
Then onward still and onward go, and this our constant song—
God bless America the free, Her praises loud prolong.

4 And ever, long as Time shall last, and brave men tread the sod,
Will we remember “Right is Might,” and put our trust in God.
Then firm, united let us stand and sing the patriot song—
God bless America the free, Her praises loud prolong.
