Our Torn Flag

Harris, Printer, S. E. Cor, 4th & Vine Sts, Phila.

Our Torn Flag.

See our torn flag still waving,
Rally round it in your might,
Each his position firmly holding—
Heaven will aid those in the right.
From each rocky hill and valley,
Rise against the invading band;
In the name of Freedom rally
To defend your native land.
In the name of Freedom rally
To defend your native land.

Foemen now your soil oppressing,—
They your laws—your rights defy;
Ask from heaven a Father’s blessing,
Then for freedom dare to die.
What though ruthless foes assail you,
Who in bloody deeds take pride,
Let not hope or courage fail you,—
Freedom’s God is on your side.
Let not hope or courage fail you,—
Freedom’s God is on your side.

Freemen rise ye that inherit
From a line of noble sires—
Manly blood and manly spirit,
Rise to guard your household fires.
By the parents that have reared you,
By your wives and children dear,
Lest those loved ones should scorn you,
Rise without a thought or fear.
Lest those loved ones should scorn you,
Rise without a thought or fear.

Come as comes the tempest—rushing,
Bending forests in its path;
As the mountain torrents gushing—
As the billows jn their wrath.
From each rocky hill and valley,
Sweep away the invading band;
In the name of Freedom rally,
To defend your native land.
In the name of Freedom rally,
To defend your native land.
