My Country, 'Tis of Thee

Representative Text

1 My country, 'tis of thee,
sweet land of liberty,

land of the pilgrims' pride,
from every mountainside
let freedom ring!

2 My native country, thee,
land of the noble free,
thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
thy woods and templed hills;
my heart with rapture thrills
like that above.

3 Let music swell the breeze,
and ring from all the trees
sweet freedom's song:
let mortal tongues awake,
let all that breathe partake;
let rocks their silence break,
the sound prolong.
