O, Beautiful for Spacious Skies

O, beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountains majesty
Above the fruited plain

America America God
Shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From Sea to Shining Sea

I just sang along Beth! Beautiful! Hope you are having a great 4th! :c)

Beth--thanks for the photo essay honoring our country. I like "O, Beautiful for Spacious Skies" so much more than our national anthem. I find the melody much easier to sing, and I find the sentiment more suitable to a great country, than the martial tone of our national anthem.

Good one Beth. Bebe and I just got back from South Padre Island where we had a very nice supper. All are well here. Happy 4th to all the Mainers.
