1 Your flag and my flag,
And how it flies today,
In your land and my land,
And half the world away;
Rose-red and blood-red
Its stripes forever gleam,
Snow-white and soul-white,
The good forefather’s dream.
Sky-blue and true-blue,
With stars to shine aright;
The gloried guidon of the day,
A shelter in the night.

2 Your flag and my flag,
O, how much it holds
Your land and my land
Secure within its folds!
Your heart and my heart
Beat quicker at the sight,
Snow-kissed and wind-toss’d,
Red and blue and white,–
The one flag, the great flag,
The flag for me and you,
Glorified all else beside,
The red and white and blue.

3 Your flag and my flag,
To ev’ry star and stripe
The drums beat as hearts beat,
And pipers shrilly pipe.
Your flag and my flag,
A blessing in the sky;
Your hope and my hope,
It never hid a lie.
Home-land and far land,
And half the world around,
Old Glory hears the great salute,
And flutters to the sound.
