To help you memorize lyrics for our patriotic music, I have included them below:
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 mountainside let freedom ring!
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!
THE NATIONAL ANTHEM
Oh, say can you see, by the dawn's early loght, What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight, o'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming? And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave....O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
