All hail, America

This is the day we celebrate

Representative Text

1 This is the day we celebrate,
All hail, America! (all hail!)
God builds the nation strong and great,
All hail, America! (all hail!)
Columbia praise His mighty name,
Ye sons of freedom, shout acclaim,
And set His altars all aflame
For Free America.

2 O it is meet to swell the song,
All hail, America! (all hail!)
The sounding chorus to prolong,
All hail, America! (all hail!)
In God the land is all at rest,
Its cities safe, its furrows blest,--
The heavens shower down their best
For Free America.

3 We praise the Lord with gladsome joy,
All hail, America! (all hail!)
His honor shall our lips employ,
All hail, America! (all hail!)
America's ten-thousand tongues
Shall fill His courts with soulful songs,
To whom the honor all belongs,
For Free America.

4 Long may His goodness lead our land;
All hail, America! (all hail!)
Long may we trust His faithful hand;
All hail, America! (all hail!)
O may we never see the day
When from His care we go astray,
And may He ever show the way
For Free America.
