Other Verses

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 the country loved
And mercy more than life! 
America! America!
May God thy gold refine 
Till all success be nobleness 
And every gain divine!
