    This poem is divinely beautiful, and very aspiring. All Americans (all Poets) should revere and remember the name of Katharine Lee Bates. This is really wonderful. The words are divine and mystical.

    Hey yo! i read your poem called ' America the Beautiful ' & i lost my focus, personal attribute & listening skill, hence i believe that everything has it's own place & time, but the fact remains! I couldn't believe that this was my home country.

    Your correspondence will be highly appreciated.

    Have a nice day!

Best Poem of Katharine Lee Bates

America The Beautiful

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 pilgrim feet,
Whose stern, impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
America! America!
God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

Anniversary Hymn

[sung to tune: "All Saints New"]

Our fathers, in the years grown dim, reared slowly, wall by wall
A holy dwelling-place for Him, that filleth all in all.
They wrought His house of faith and prayer, the rainbow round the Throne,
A precious temple builded fair on Christ the Cornerstone.
