America the Beautiful (with audience)—Samuel Ward

1. O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain!
America!  America!  God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea!

3. O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved, And mercy more than life.
America!  America!  May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness, And every gain divine!

4. O beautiful for patriot dream That sees beyond the years,
Thine alabaster cities gleam Undimmed by human tears!
America!  America!  God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea!
