O beautiful for heroes proved

These "Beautiful" lyrics say so much in remembrance of 9/11/01
I am listening to Ray Charles sing it with the greatest of inspiration..

"O beautiful for heroes proved 
In liberating strife. 
Who more than self their country loved
And mercy more than life! 
America! America! 
May God thy gold refine 
Till all success be nobleness 
And every gain divine! 

O beautiful for patriot dream 
That sees beyond the years 
Thine alabaster cities gleam 
Undimmed by human tears! 
America! America! 
God shed his grace on thee 
And crown thy good with brotherhood 

From sea to shining sea!"
