Some English proverbs
If wishes were horses beggars would ride.
Actions speak louder than words.
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
Don`t cross a bridge till you come to it.
All`s well that ends well.

Yosemite National Park in the United States

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 mountain side,
Let freedom ring.

My native country thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love.
I love thy rocks and reels,
Thy woods and template hills,
My heart with rapture thrills,
Like that above.

Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees,
Sweet freedom`s song:
Let mortal tongues awake,
Let all that breathe partake,
Let rocks their silence break,
The sound prolong.

Our father`s God, to thee,
Author of liberty,
To thee we pray.
Long may our land be bright,
With freedom`s holy light,
Protect us by thy might,
Great God, our King.

God bless America, land that I love.
Stand beside her and guide her,
Through the night with the light from above.
From the mountains to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam.
God bless America. My home sweet home.

America the beautiful
O 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.

O beautiful for pilgrim feet, Whose stern, impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat, Across the wilderness!
America! America! God mend thine ev`ry flaw.
Confirm thy soul in self control, Thy liberty in law.

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 ev`ry gain divine.
