26. our country's Flag.

campaign song.

air--“Sparkling and Bright.”

Loyal and true to the red, white, and blue,
     With high resolve united,
We firmly stand for our native land,
     By faith and honor plighted.

Then rally we all at the nation's call,
     While the dear old flag waves o'er us;
And our song shall rise till the bending skies
     Resound with the swelling chorus.

When in treason's hour our country's power
     To the hands of traitors was given,
Men woke to life for the deadly strife,
     As the flag caught the breezes of heaven.

Then rally we all at the nation's call,
     While the dear old flag waves o'er us;
And our song shall rise till the bending skies
     Resound with the swelling chorus.

By our sacred cause — by our rights and laws--
     By freedom's hallowed story--
By this flag of the free, on the land and the sea,
     We'll maintain our country's glory.

Then rally we all to the nation's call,
     While the dear old flag waves o'er us;
And our song shall rise till the bending skies
     Resound with the swelling chorus.

O flag divine! each star of thine
     Shall brighten in wondrous beauty,
When the wanderers come to their olden home
     In the robes of truth and duty

Then in Union grand we shall firmly stand,
     While the Stars and Stripes wave o'er us,
And our song shall rise till the bending skies
     Resound with the swelling chorus.
