Dear Old Flag

The dear old flag.

See the flag! the dear old flag,
The dear old flag, the dear old flag,
See the flag, the dear old flag,
on the breezes waving.
See it float fvnrom east to west,
From east to west, from east to west,
See it float from east to west,
Treason’s tempest braving.

Wear this flag upon your heart,
Upon your heart, upon your heart,
Wear this flag upon your heart,
Freedom,’s sons and daughters.
From the wild Atlantic shore,
Atlantic shore, Atlantic shore,
From the wild Atlantic shore,
To Pacific’s waters.

Blessings on the stripes and stars,
The stripes and stars, the stripes and stars,
Blessings on the stripes and stars,
On our country’s banner.
Blessings on the Ship of State,
The Ship of State, the ship of state,
Blessings on the Ship of State,
And the hearts that man her.

Lift the flag and join the song,
And join the song, and join the song,
Lift the flag and join the song,
Once united nation.
Union now and evermore,
And evermore, and evermore,
Union now and evermore,
Hear me all creation.
