Representative Text

1 Our fathers have purchased, with tears and with blood,
This beautiful country for freedom and God;
Columbia! Columbia! our heritage grand,
We love and we’ll honor our dear native land:

To thee our allegiance for ever is due,
To God and our country we’re loyal and true;
To thee our allegiance for ever is due,
To God and our country we’re loyal and true.

2 The foes of our country are many and strong,
The powers of evil, of sin, and of wrong;
Columbia! Columbia! may God be thy shield,
His truth be thy buckler, the sword thou shalt wield:

With hearts full of courage to dare and to do,
To God and our country we’re loyal and true;
With hearts full of courage to dare and to do,
To God and our country we’re loyal and true.

3 Oh, happy that people whose God is the Lord,
Who walk in His counsel, obeying His word;
Columbia! Columbia! this glory be thine,
That still thou shalt merit the blessing divine:

And we, thy dear children, our vows will renew,
To God and our country we’re loyal and true;
And we, thy dear children, our vows will renew,
To God and our country we’re loyal and true.

4 Know ye, who would merit a patriot’s reward,
He best serves his country who best serves the Lord;
Columbia! Columbia! but honor Thy God,
And He will exalt thee, at home and abroad

Then long wave our banner, the red, white and blue.
To God and our country we’re loyal and true;
Then long wave our banner, the red, white and blue.
To God and our country we’re loyal and true.
