This arrangement of "America the Beautiful" is from Twila Paris' 2012 CD, "God Shed His Grace—Songs of Truth and Freedom."

AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL
Music by Samuel A. Ward (written in 1882)
Lyrics by Katharine Lee Bates (written in 1889)

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

O beautiful for pilgrim feet
Whose stern impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness

America! America! God mend thine every flaw
Confirm thy soul in self-control
Thy liberty in law

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

America! America! God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea
