Representative Text

1 The cry rings out o’er all the land today,
Give us a stainless flag!
No more let greed and vice on manhood prey,
Give us a stainless flag!

Refrain:
Give us a stainless flag!
Men of the nation!
Drive out the greed for gain,
Let rum no longer reign;
Strive that our land obtain
A stainless flag!

2 Oh, let our name for truth and honor stand,
Give us a stainless flag!
The land of justice, of the helping hand,
Give us a stainless flag! [Refrain]

3 No more let sordid greed the laws control,
Give us a stainless flag!
Nor ice unstayed degrade the nation’s soul,
Give us a stainless flag! [Refrain]

4 The emblem of a noble nation’s life,
Give us a stainless flag!
True sign of pow’r that hushes war and strife,
Give us a stainless flag! [Refrain]
