AMERICA, Sweet Land of Liberty!


LISTEN TO ‘AMERICA (My Country, ‘Tis of Thee’ sung at President Obama’s 2013 Presidental Inauguration

♫ AMERICA (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 pilgrims’ pride, 

From every mountain side

Let Freedom ring.

Our fathers’ 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.

IS AMERICA STILL THE SAME AMERICA THAT I SANG ABOUT AS A CHILD?  Will this song that was sung by American patriots and scouts be sung much longer?  

‘Protect us by thy might

 Great God, our King’.

Will God still honor the words of this song?  I never knew that there were 8 verses, but I still remember verses 1 and 4 by heart and taught it to my students in school.
