God save America, New world of glory

Full Text

1. God save America! New world of glory,
Newborn to freedom and knowledge and power,
Lifting the towers of her lightning-lit cities
Where the flood tides of humanity roar.

2. God save America! Here may all races
Mingle together as children of God;
Founding an empire on brotherly kindness,
Equal in liberty, made of one blood.

Wail of the worker and curse of the crushed;
Calling the nations to glad federation;
Leading the world in the triumph of love.

4. God save America! ’Mid all her splendors,
Save her from pride and from luxury;
Throne in her heart the unseen and eternal;
Right be her might and the truth make her free.
