What well-known patriotic song features the line “From sea to shining sea”?

  • "God Bless America"
  • "This Land Is Your Land"
  • "America the Beautiful"
  • "Yankee Doodle"

Question:

Answer: "America the Beautiful" is an American patriotic song. Katharine Bates originally wrote the words as a poem, "Pikes Peak", first published in the Fourth of July edition of the church periodical The Congregationalist in 1895. At various times, there have been efforts to give "America the Beautiful" legal status either as a national hymn or as a national anthem equal to, or in place of, "The Star-Spangled Banner", but so far this has not succeeded. "From sea to shining sea", is an American idiom meaning "from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean".
