My Country, 'Tis of Thee

Words by Samuel F. Smith (1808-1895)
Tune: AMERICA from "Thesaurus Msucus," 1744
Key signature: F major (1 flat)
1. My country, ’Tis of thee, Sweet land of liberty, Of thee I sing: Land where my fathers died, Land of the pilgrims’ pride, From ev’ry mountain side 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.
4. 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!
