My coun-try , tis of thee, Sweet land of lib-er-ty, Of thee I sing.
Land where my fa-thers died; Land of the pil-grim’s pride;
From ev-‘ry moun-tain side, Let free-dom ring!
My na-tive coun-try, thee, land of the no-ble free, Thy name I love.
I love they rocks and rills, They woods and tem-pled hills;
My heart with rap-ture thrills Like that a-bove.
Let mu-sic swell the breeze, And ring from all he trees Sweet free-dom’s song.
Let mor-tal tongues a-wake; Let all that breathe par-take;
Let rocks their si-lence break, The sound pro-long.
Our fa-thers’ God, to Thee, Au-thor of lib-er-ty, To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright with free-dom’s ho-ly light;
Pro-tect us by Thy night, Great God, our King!
