Viva L'America


500 Illustrated Ballads, lithographed and printed by CHARLES MAGNUS, No. 12 Frankfort Street, New York

Viva 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 ever traitor rise in the land,
Curs’d be his homestead, wither’d his hand;
Shame be his mem’ry, 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 “Stripes and Star’s” still proudly shall wave
Emblem of Liberty, flag of the brave.
“United we stand, divided we fall,”
Gladly we’ll die at our country’s call.

Branch Office: No. 520 7th St., Washington, D.C.
