mf 2 O beautiful for pilgrim feet,

cr America ! America!
Whose stern, impassioned stress May God thy gold refine,
A thoroughfare for freedom beat Till all success be nobleness,
Across the wilderness!

And every gain divine !
cr America! America!
God mend thine every flaw,

mf 4 O beautiful for patriot dream
Confirm thy soul in self-control,

That sees beyond the years
Thy liberty in law !

Thine alabaster cities gleam

Undimmed by human tears ! mf 3 O beautiful for heroes proved

cr America ! America! In liberating strife,

f God shed his grace on thee Who more than self their country And crown Thy good with brotherAnd mercy more than lifelsloved; From sea to shining sea! [hood

f3 O Beautiful, our country!

Round thee in love we draw;
Thine is the grace of freedom,

The majesty of law:
Be righteousness thy sceptre,

Justice thy diadem;
And on thy shining forehead
Be peace the crowning gem.

mf 2 The strength of every state increase Bring down the proud, lift up the In Union's golden chain;

Unequal ways amend; [poor,
Her thousand cities fill with peace, By justice, nation-wide and sure,
Her million fields with grain;

America befriend !
The virtues of her mingled blood
In one new people blend;

mf 4 Through all the waiting land proBy unity and brotherhood,

Thy gospel of good-will; (claim America befriend !

And may the joy of Jesus' name

In every bosom thrill. mi 3 O suffer not her feet to stray, f O'er hill and vale, from sea to sea, But guide her untaught might,

Thy holy reign extend;
That she may walk in peaceful day, By faith and hope and charity,
And lead the world in light.

America befriend !

mf2 A few more suns shall set

A few more struggles here,
O'er these dark hills of time,

A few more partings o'er, cr And we shall be where suns are not,

A few more toils, a few more tears, A far serener clime:

cr And we shall weep no more:
Then, O my Lord, prepare

Then, O my Lord, prepare
My soul for that blest day;

My soul for that bright day; dim 0 wash me in Thy precious blood, dim 0 wash me in Thy precious blood, p And take my sins away.

p And take my sins away. mf3 A few more storms shall beat mf 5 'Tis but a little while On this wild rocky shore,

And He shall come again, [lives dim And we shall be where tempests cease, cr Who died that we might live, (Who And surges swell no more:

That we with Him may reign: cr Then, O my Lord, prepare

p Then, O my Lord, prepare My soul for that calm day;

cr My soul for that glad day; dim 0 wash me in Thy precious blood, dim 0 wash me in Thy precious blood, p And take my sins away,

p And take my sins away.

mf 2 Ring out the old, ring in the new,

Ring in the love of truth and right, Ring, happy bells, across the snow: Ring in the common love of good. The year is going, let him go;

5 Ring out the shapes of foul disease, Ring out the false, ring in the true.

Ring ont the narrowing lust of gold; 3 Ring out the grief that saps the mind, Ring out the thousand wars of old,

For those that here we see no more; Ring in the thousand years of peace. Ring out the feud of rich and poor, cr 6 Ring in the valiant man and free, Ring in redress to all mankind.

The larger heart, the kindlier hand; 4 Ring out false pride in place and blood, Ring out the darkness of the land, The civic slander and the spite;

Ring in the Christ that is to be.

A. Tennyson

mf 2 Dark the future; let Thy light

p 4 Who of us death's awful road
cr Guide us, bright and morning Star: In the coming year shall tread,
Fierce our foes, and hard the fight;

With Thy rod and staff, O God,
Arm us, Saviour, for the war.

Comfort Thou his dying bed. mf 3 In our weakness and distress,

mf 5 Keep us faithful, keep us pure, cr Rock of strength, be Thou our Stay; Keep us evermore Thine own, mf In the pathless wilderness

Help, O, help us to endure; cr Be our true and living Way.

Fit us for the promised crown.
