1 For your flag and my flag
We lift a song today,
Its red and white and blue unite
All hearts beneath its sway;
A flag all other flags above,
The ensign of the free,
All worthy of our hearts’ best love,
The flag for you and me.

Refrain:
Then hail to the flag! all hail to the flag!
The ensign of the free,
“With its red for love and its white for law
And its blue for the hope that the fathers saw
Of a larger liberty,
Of a larger liberty.”

2 To your flag and my flag
The red and white and blue,
Whose colors seem where’er they gleam
An emblem of the true,
WE pledge our love and loyalty,
Our honor and our might,
To keep this ensign of the free,
The banner of the right. [Refrain]

3 Oh, your flag and my flag,
The white and blue and red,
How much it holds within its folds!
What triumphs it has led,
How brightly in their field of blue,
Her stars of statehood gleam,
This flag for me, this flag for you,
Fulfills the fathers’ dream. [Refrain]
