"America, The Beautiful" as written by and Samuel/bates Ward....
O 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!
O beautiful for heroes proved,
In liberating strife,
Who more than self, their country loved
And more than life
America! America!
God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!
If you'd like to join me, please do!
O 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!
To shining sea!

    General CommentStreisand's rendition of this in her "One Voice" concert is electrifying.

    This should be our national anthem, not that warmongering "Star-Spangled Banner."
