Columbia’s Glorious Banner

Oh! the Banner of Columbia’s glorious land,
Our hope by land and by sea;
The Flag that was borne by the patriot band,
When they fought for dear Liberty;
With patriots to guard our banner so bright.
And our volunteers so brave;
Undaunted we’ll rush in the midst of the fight,
Our glorious Union to save.

Arise then bold patriots and let your flag wave,
And swear to protect it forever;
For freedom we’ll fight till we sink in the grave,
Before our loved Union shall sever,
Then up with a will and protect your bright flag
From traitors and vile usurpation;
We will ne’er let the South of secession make brag,
Or let them divide our great nation.

Up! up, sons of freedom, unite in our band,
And fight for the land of your birth;
We’ll swear by our banner, and country to stand,
And crush all rebellion to earth;
The memory of our patriots shall last,
And our eagle that soars through the sky,
No traitor, or rebel, our country shall blast,
While the Flag of our Union shall fly.
