True beauty starts at the heart in relationship to Jesus Christ. Life shines from here.
America, the Beautiful,
what could be beauty more?
Thy heartstrings two directions pull.
Of sweetness quick explore.

America, thy plains of grains,
and checkerboard the farms
do please the eyes as right as rain,
but actions, thoughts alarm.

America, you sought the Lord
when but an infant small,
but now return thee to His Word,
and on His Name now call.

America, your beauty is
not just from litter free.
Your beauty starts, and ends, and lives
within the Grace of He.

O, beautify thy heart from sin.
The Savior make thee clean,
that throughout Time in the days of men
blest beauty's always seen.
