Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Daily Justice: Sr. Miriam Therese Winter

How beautiful, our spacious skies, our amber waves of grain;
Our purple mountains as they rise above the fruitful plain
America! America! God’s gracious gifts abound.
And more and more we’re grateful for life’s beauty all around.

Indigenous and immigrant, our daughters and our sons
O may we never rest content till are all truly one
America! America! God grant that we may be
A sisterhood and brotherhood from sea to shining sea.

How beautiful, all continents, and islands in the sea
That dream of peace, nonviolence, all people living free.
America! America! God grant that we may be
A global sphere where people here all live in harmony.

- Version of “America the Beautiful” updated in 1993 by Sr. Miriam Therese Winter, SMM
