|"How Beautiful, Our Spacious Skies"|
|(from New Century Hymnal, written by Katherine Lee Bates & Miriam Theresa Winters)|
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 bounty all around.
Indigenous and immigrant, our daughters and our sons:
O may we never rest content till all are truely one.
America! America! God grant that we may be a sisterhood
and brotherhood from sea to shining sea.
How beautiful, sincere lament, the wisdom born of tears,
the courage called for to repent the bloodshed throuigh the years.
America! America! God grant that we may be a nation blessed,
with none oppressed, true land of liberty.
How beautiful, two continents, and islands in the sea that dream
of peace, non-violence, all people living free. Americas! Americas!
God grant that we may be a hemisphere where people here all live
The Coast Guard Auxiliary is a voluntary organization whose purpose is to augment the missions of the United States Coast Guard. The Auxiliary is non-military and has no law enforcement authority. The Auxiliary's primary mission is to promote boating safety upon the inland and coastal waters of the United States of America.
This is accomplished through public education, vessel safety inspections, local safety patrols, and by assisting the Coast Guard in carrying out its Search and Rescue, maritime security and environmental protection responsibilities. We are the "eyes and ears" of the Coast Guard, ever ready to serve the needs of the boating public.
If you are interested in joining the Auxiliary, please call us at our contact phone number 609-399-4299, or attend one of our monthly meetings.
