1 This is our country’s celebration,
A hundred years has borne us on;
Freedom and God were its salvation,
Tis rock was Right, by this it won.

Chorus:
Hurrah! hurrah! for our country’s banner,
Let its bright folds remain unfurl’d,
Till ev’ry nation learns the tidings,
Freedom and truth for all the world.

2 Columbia’s hope is in her children,
Its flag they’ll bear thro’ many a fight,
Till ev’ry nation learns its freedom,
And serve our God with freedom’s light. [Chorus]

3 Then lift on high this glorious banner,
Our country’s God to thee we sing;
Let its bright folds protect us ever,
And cov’r it with thy shelt’ring wing. [Chorus]
