Church and State

My country, ítis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrimsí pride,
From every mountainside,
Let freedom ring!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Let tyrants shake their iron rods,
And slavery clank her galling chains:
We see them not; we trust in God:
Our Nationís God forever reigns.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture thrills,
Like that above.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Judge eternal, throned in splendor,
Lord of lords and King of kings,
With Thy living fire of judgment
Purge this land of bitter things;
Solace all its wide dominion
With the healing of Thy wings.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

No more shall tyrants here
With haughty steps appear,
And soldier bands;
No more shall tyrants tread
Above the patriot deadó
No more our blood be shed
By alien hands.
