Vive l'America

Vive l’america.

Noble Republic! happiest of lands,
Foremost of nations, Columbia stands;
Freedom’s proud banner floats in the
Skies,
Where shouts of Liberty daily arise.
“United we stand, divided we fall.”
Union forever—freedom to all.

Should every traitor rise in the land,
Curs’d be his homestead, wither’d his
Hand;
Shame be his memory, scorn be his lot,
Exile his heritage, his name a blot;
“United we stand, divided we fall,”
Granting a home and freedom to all.

To all her heroes, Justice and Fame,
To all her foes, a traitor’s foul name;
Our “Stars and Stripes” still proudly
Shall wave,
Emblem of Liberty, flag of the brave,
“United we stand, divided we fall,”
Gladly we’ll die at our county’s call,
