H. DE MARSAN. Songs, Ballads, toy books. 60 Chatham St. N. Y.

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.

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.

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.

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 thy might,
Great God, our King.

ENTERED according to Act of Congress in the year 1860, byH. DE MARSAN . In the Clerk’s office of the District Court of the United States, for the Southern District of New York.
