Sentimental Sunday #29, My Country, 'tis of thee








 My country,' tis of thee,


sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing;

land where my fathers died,

land of the pilgrims' pride,

from every mountainside let freedom ring!



 My native country, thee,

land of the noble free, thy name I love;

I love thy rocks and rills,

thy woods and templed hills;

my heart with rapture thrills, like that above.



 Let music swell the breeze,

and ring from all the trees sweet freedom's song;

let mortal tongues awake;

let all that breathe partake;

let rocks their silence break, the sound prolong.



 Our fathers' God, to thee,

author of liberty, to thee we sing;

long may our land be bright

with freedom's holy light;

protect us by thy might, great God, our King.




So what are you sentimental about this week?

Love this post. When I was a little girl, we sang this song every morning after the prayer and pledge was said over the intercom for the whole PUBLIC school to hear.

Hope y'all are well!!
