       AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL

       Oh beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain,
       For purple mountains majesty, above the fruited plain!
       America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
       And crown thy good with brotherhood,
       From sea to shining sea.

       Oh beautiful for patriot's dream, that sees beyond the years.
       Thine alabaster cities gleam, undimmed by human tears.
       America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
       And crown thy good with brotherhood,
       From sea to shining sea.

     Morning has broken like the first morning,                          Leader:          When I look at the sky which You have made; at the moon
     Blackbird has spoken like the first bird.                                            and the stars, which you have set in their places . . .
     Praise for the singing, praise for the morning,
