1 There’s a call of triumph ringing where our starry banner flies,
There are shouts of exultation that from loyal lips arise;
For the nation’s youths are singing, as they lift their shining eyes,
“Our country and our God, Our country and our God.”

Refrain:
“Our country and our God,
Our country and our God.”
No foe can withstand such a cry from such a band,
“Our country and our God!”

2 In the glow of youthful beauty, in the flush of youthful pride,
They have gathered round their banner, they have rallied round their guide;
As a joy and as a duty, they are singing far and wide,
“Our country and our God, Our country and our God.” [Refrain]

3 Thro’ our whole beloved nation, east and west, from shore to shore,
May there be that one glad watch cry, may it echo o’er and o’er;
In the union of salvation, may we sing for evermore,
“Our country and our God, Our country and our God.” [Refrain]
