Famous Song Lyrics in America

America the Beautiful (in Chinese)



美麗的阿美利卡


美哉,此地遼闊天空,麥浪田閃金黃。

奇妙紫山,巍峨峻嶺,聳立於果原中。

阿美利卡!阿美利卡!上帝賜恩無盡。

冠以美善,惠及友鄰,光照無邊海洋。

 

美哉,此地朝聖行列,莊嚴肯定腳步。

四通大道,自由鼓吹,穿過曠野而來。

阿美利卡!阿美利卡!上帝修補瑕疵。

認定靈性,克制自我,權利法治共融。

 

美哉,此地!各路英雄,為自由而奮鬥。

愛國忘己,甘願成仁,慈悲勝過生命。

阿美利卡!阿美利卡!上帝精煉如金。

唯望成就全然崇高,每得益皆聖潔。

 

美哉,此地愛國美夢,眼光超越時空。

理想之城,光芒如雪,淚痕不掩明亮。

阿美利卡!阿美利卡!上帝賜恩無盡。

冠以美善,惠及友鄰,光照無邊海洋。

America the Beautiful (Lyrics)

 

Oh, beautiful for spacious skies,

For amber waves of grain,

For purple mountain majesties

Above the fruited plain!

America! America!

God shed his grace on thee,

And crown thy good with brotherhood

From sea to shining sea.

 

Oh, beautiful for pilgrim feet,

Whose stern, impassioned stress

A thoroughfare of freedom beat

Across the wilderness!

America! America!

God mend thine every flaw,

Confirm thy soul in self-control,

Thy liberty in law.

 

Oh, 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.

 

Oh, 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.
