America The Beautiful being sung by Ray Charles.

America The Beautiful

Oh beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife
Who more than self, their country loved
And mercy more than life America,

It’s America, sweet America

May God thy gold refine
‘Til all success be nobleness
And every gain divined

(And you know when I was a little boy I remember we always sang these words)

Oh beautiful, for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain

America, sweet America
You know, God done shed his grace on thee
He crowned thy good, (don’t you remember) in brotherhood
From sea to shining sea

America, I love you America

Yes, Jesus, I want to thank You Lord. I want to thank You Lord.

“May you and I pray for America today and every day.” <>< Dona
