Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

1.	My country, 'tis of thee, 
	Sweet land of liberty, 
	Of thee I sing: 
	Land where my fathers died, 
	Land of the pilgrims' pride, 
	From ev'ry mountainside 
	Let freedom ring! 

2.	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. 

3.	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. 

4.	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!
