The Flag With the Thirty Four Stars

The Flag With the Thirty Four Stars.

The Rebels sing the “Bonnie Blue Flag,”
But we the “Stars and Stripes,”
Our Union flag we love so true,
Will conquer their stars and bars,
Their secesh airs, their Maryland,
Their contrabands of war.
Our cause is right; the flag for the fight,
Is won with the thirty-four stars.

Our song is for the Union,
And triumph sure we must.
The cause so just will prosper,
When in God we place our trust.
Our flag, our pride victorious,
Behold it far and near;
We bear aloft Red, White and Blue,
With every star and stripe.—

Protection we extend to all,
The exile finds a home,
In our Columbia,—Glorious land!
The stranger welcome come.
They with us heart and hand unite,
To crush the rebel war;
And fight for our Red, White and Blue,
With every stripe and star.—

Hurrah! for brave McClellan,
Of bold Antietam fame;
Victory crowned his battle-flag,
A charm is in his name.
And Hooker, Siegel, Kenly too,
Who each can show a scar,
Poured out their blood this flag to save
With every stripe and star.—

All honor to the men who fight,
Tears for the noble dead;
Our country mourns her soldier brave,
Whose blood for us was shed;
And every patriot volunteer,
Enlisted for the war—God bless them!
Battling for our flag,
With every stripe and star.—

Auner, Song Publisher, 45 N. 9th St., Philadelphia, Pa.
