American songs

AMERICA, AMERICA, AMERICA


America, America, America!
Great you are, good you are, brave you are, kind you are.
O my America, America,
Your Heaven-freedom is earth's aspiration-choice.
With you, in you is God-Hour's Victory-Voice.

     

O SWEET LIBERTY

O sweet liberty, O sweet liberty,
O Eternity's divinity-day,
I know, I know,
You are earth-perfection's only way.
O sweet liberty, O sweet liberty,
You are blue Heaven's Vision-seed.
I know, I know,
You alone are the world-hunger's unerring need.


O GREEN-BLUE SACRED FIRE

O green-blue Sacred Fire,
O Sun Freedom-Light,
O Heaven's gold Delight,
America, O My child of speed,
My supreme Promise-Seed.


I BOW TO YOU

I bow to you, I bow to you, I bow to you,
O worshipper of Power supreme.
You are the beckoning hands of our great liberation.
O my America,
The Smile of the Absolute
Is dancing for you
With ever-glowing flames of aspiration.


O BEAUTIFUL AMERICA

O beautiful America of the Lord Supreme,
You are the pride divine of our soul.
The boundless glory of your giant arms
And the nectar-flood of your loving heart
Are but a collection of delight-flowers in the blue-vast sky.        


O MY AMERICA

O my America,
O land of supernal delight,
Your selfless deeds are the life-breath of your heart.
You are the matchless hope of the entire world.
In you the world sees a most auspicious vision-light.
   

AMERICA, AMERICA

America, America, I salute you.
You announce the message of liberation-light
To the world.
You chase away the darkest darkness of the world.
You are a perfect stranger to fear,
Cowardice and meanness.
You embody the child-like heart.
In you we have discovered the flood of peace.


SUPERNAL BEAUTY

We have achieved the supernal beauty
Of the pure heart of our America;
We have seen the strong arms
And matchless pomp of America;
Therefore, we are in perfect silence.
America, America, America,
In you abides the adoration-incense-fragrance
Of the world-love.


O STAR-SPANGLED BANNER

O star-spangled banner of the hour Supreme,
You are God's Sound Delight.
In you is God's Silence-Might.
For you is the world-pilot's transcendence-dream.


PHILADELPHIA

Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Philadelphia.
O sweet city of brotherly love.
O God-perfection below, above.
Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Philadelphia.
Your world-attention Liberty Bell
Proclaimed the death of our bondage-hell.
O freedom-lovers' utopia!
Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Philadelphia.
