Air -- Auld Lang Syne.

The floating Flag of Liberty,
Of freedom's sons the boast,
Its stars and stripes long may they wave
Upon Columbia's coast.
The only flag that freedom rears
On land or o'er the seas,
The flag that stood some sixty years,
The battle and the breeze.

To aid the trampled rights of man,
And break oppression's chain,
The foremost in the battle's van,
It never floats in vain.
The mariner where e'er he steers,
In every clime he sees
The Flag that stood some sixty years
The battle and the breeze.

If all unite as once we did,
With Lincoln's flag unfurled,
Columbia then may fearless bid
Defiance to the world.
But fast would flow the nation's tears
If lawless bands should sieze
The Flag that braved some sixty years
The battle and the breeze.
