Retired Scouter Campfire Songs 


America The Beautiful


Oh 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!

Oh beautiful, for pilgrims' feet,
Whose firm impassioned stress,
A thoroughfare for freedom beat,
across the wilderness!
America! America! God mend thy every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self control,
Thy liberty in law!

Oh beautiful, for heroes proved,
In liberating strife,
Who more than self --- their country loved,
and mercy more than life!
America! America! May God thy gold refine,
'til all success be nobleness,
and every gain divine!

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.
