REV. SAMUEL FRANCIS SMITH
American clergyman and poet
(1808 - 1895)

My county, 'tis of thee,
  Sweet land of liberty,--Of thee I sing;
    Land where my fathers died.
      Land of the Pilgrim's pride,
        From every mountain side
          Let freedom ring.
      - [Patriotism]

Strew the fair garlands where slumber the dead,
  Ring out the strains like the swell of the sea;
    Heart-felt the tribute we lay on each bed:
      Sound o'er the brave the refrain of the free,
        Sound the refrain of the loyal and free,
          Visit each sleeper and hallow each bed:
            Waves the starred banner from sea-coast to sea;
              Grateful the living and honored the dead.
      - [Decoration Day]

The good of olden times let others state.
  I think it lucky I was born so late.
      - [Past]

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!
      - America,
        first stanza of song also known as My Country 'Tis of Thee
        [America : Liberty]
