1. The Nina, the Pinta, the Santa Maria,

Sailed over the bounding sea,

In search of the land, a brand new world,

Where all men could be free,

They did not know what they would find,

As they braved that bounding main,

But guided safely by God’s hand,

They won fortune and fame.



America, America,

God shed His grace on thee,

He crowned thy goods with brotherhood,

From sea to shining sea,

Oh, let’s rejoice and praise His name,

For blessings rich and rare,

For all the fields of waving grain,

And because our Savior cares.

They landed safely in the port,

Of a world so rich and rare,

And there they knelt upon their knees,

To worship God in prayer,

To give all praise unto His name,

Oh how they worshipped Him,

The wonderful God, everlasting one,

Who brought them safe thus far.
