America the Beautiful (Continued)
Melvin Rookus, 1995
O beautiful for days to come when wars shall cease to be;
When we shall gain true peace with all, and live in harmony.
America, America, God shed his grace on thee,
And temper wrath, show us the path, with love and dignity.
O God, now bless our country as we plan for future days;
May we now strive for tolerance and follow in your ways.
America, America, pray make us strong and free,
Allow our hearts to heal and guide us through eternity.
