Music of the Civil War


America J.P. Smith

My country, 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died
Land of the Pilgrims' pride
From ev'ry mountain side,
Let freedom ring.

Our Father's God! to Thee
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing;
Long may our land be bright
With freedom's holy light;
Protect us by Thy might
Great God, our King!
