This Is My Country

This is my country! Land of my birth!
This is my country! Grandest on earth!
I pledge thee my allegiance, America, the bold,
For this is my country to have and to hold.


What diff'rence if I hail from North or South
Or from the East or West?

 
My heart is filled with love for all of these.
I only know I swell with pride and deep within my breast

I thrill to see Old Glory paint the breeze.
With hand upon heart I thank the Lord For this my native land,

 
For all I love is here within her gates.

My soul is rooted deeply in the soil on which I stand,
For these are mine own United States.

 
This is my country! Land of my choice!
This is my country! Hear my proud voice!

I pledge thee my allegiance, America, the bold,
For this is my country! To have and to hold.
