Where Liberty Dwells, There Is My Country

Where Liberty Dwells, There is My Country,

Where Liberty dwells, is my Country;
There, only there; there, only there;
Where Liberty dwells, is my Country;
There, and only there. *
Though storms should howl around her,
And skies be overcast,
And the good ship seem just to founder,
Still, Boys, we give to the blast:

That Land, we will defend her,
While floats our Flag on high;
Our motto is: Never surrender!
Fight till we conquer or die!

That Star-sprent Flag once covered
Our Washington, the blest!
That Eagle victorious has hovered,
Long, o’er our bravest and best!

And know: there’s One who never
Bids a good cause go down;
God reigns, and His favor is ever
With us — with our foes, His frown.

Sing, then; bid those who love us,
Join in our song so free;
The Heavens are smiling above us:
Success, Peace and Liberty!
