All but one of his works have slipped into forgotten antiquity; this one he wrote while doing undergraduate work at Andover Theological Seminary, in 1831. America 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 mountain-side Let freedom ring. . . . . . Our fathers' God, to thee, Author of liberty, To thee I sing; Long may our land be bright With freedom's holy light; Protect us by They might, Great God, our King!
