From Delaware to Tennesse to Hawaii 

From mountain tops 

We have dreams from sea to shining sea 


And now here we are 


We have come 
we have prevailed
Whosoever dreamed, this is your will


And here we are

Here we are


At the dawn
At the morning 

Of a brand new day 
for all
In the spirit of our fathers



America

America 

America is beautiful
Yes it is

My America 

Your America 

Our America is beautiful



And may God keep us together
'
Cause America is beautiful, yeah


May liberty and justice ring for all

Let your dreams stand tall

May opportunities fall upon you 

In the land of the free 

We have come 

And we have prevailed 

For whosoever dreamed, this is your will 


And here we are

Here we are


At the start 
and the rising

Of a brand new day

For all in the spirit of the fathers 



America

America

America is beautiful
Yes it is, so beautiful

My America 

Your America

Our America is beautiful 


America

America

America is beautiful

Keep us together, yeah yeah

My America
May God keep us together

Your America
May God keep us together

Our America is beautiful 



America, America 
Is beautiful
So beautiful to me
