Representative Text

1 Float, proudly float on land and sea,
Beautiful starry flag;
Dear freedom’s emblem ever be,
Beautiful starry flag.

Refrain:
Beautiful starry flag,
Beautiful starry flag;
While sun shall shine and waters flow,
May thy fair constellation glow,
Beautiful starry flag.

2 Thou art a mighty nation’s pride,
Beautiful starry flag;
For thee have brave men fought and died,
Beautiful starry flag. [Refrain]

3 Strong arms thy honor will maintain,
Beautiful starry flag;
Upon thy folds shall come no stain,
Beautiful starry flag. [Refrain]

4 Where ever gleam thy colors bright,
Beautiful starry flag;
May’st thou uphold the cause if right,
Beautiful starry flag. [Refrain]
