Representative Text

1 Flag of the free, fairest to see!
Borne thro’ the strife and the thunder of war;
Banner so bright, with starry light,
Float ever proudly from mountain to shore:
Emblem of freedom, hope to the slave,
Spread thy fair folds to shield and to save,
While thro’ the sky loud rings the cry,
Union and Liberty! One evermore.

2 Flag of the brave, long may it wave,
Chosen of God while his might we adore,
In freedom’s van for good to man,
Symbol of right thro’ the years passing oe’r:
Pride of our country, honor’d afar,
Scatter each cloud that dims but a star,
While thro’ the sky loud rings the cry,
Union and Liberty! One evermore.
