Representative Text

1 Flag of a thousand battles!
Beautiful flag of the free.
Waving from hill and mountain;
Waving o’er land and the sea.
Outward and seaward ever,
Proudly and grandly wave;
Under thy folds of splendor,
Gather the true and brave.

Old Glory!
Old Glory!
The world awaits thy story;
Float on!
Float on!
Proclaiming liberty.
Old Glory!
Old Glory!
The world awaits thy story;
Float on!
Float on!
Thou emblem of the free.

2 Flag of a thousand vict’ries!
Vict’ries of right over wrong,
Daughters and Sons most loyal,
Ever shall praise thee in song,
Telling the blessed Union,
Liberty joined with Law!
Nations shall give thee rev’rence;
Tyrants shall stand in awe. [Chorus]

3 Flag of Imperial Manhood!
Under thy glorious fold,
Man shall attain his glory—
Glory by prophets foretold;
Truth shall proclaim her message;
Brotherly love increase;
Wave on, thou Flag of glory—
Wave till oppression cease. [Chorus]
