My Country 'Tis of Thee

  • My Country 'Tis of Thee



    My country tis of thee,
    Sweet land of liberty,
    Of thee I sing.
    Land where my fathers died!
    Land of the Pilgrim's pride!
    From every mountain side,
    Let freedom ring!


    Here are the lyrics to the lesser known verses:

    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 fills
    Like that above.

    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.

    Our father's God to, Thee,
    Author of liberty,
    To Thee we sing.
    Long may our land be bright
    With freedom's holy light;
    Protect us by Thy might,
    Great God, our King!
