The sons can never falter. And while in north and east shall stand The loyal, helping, sister band, Sweet Freedom's day shall know no night, But ever shall the flame glow bright
Upon the country's altar.
Silver white, a cloud is drifting,
In the nation's radiant sky; Through it lucent beams are rifting,
Where " Old Glory's " colors fly. From that throne of blessed Freedom,
Comes a song should never cease; Rolling on, a great Te Deum;
'Tis the mighty song of Peace;
'Tis the dulcet song of Peace.
Kneels the war-god, calm and humble, 'Fore the dazzling hosts that sing
Anthems hushing battle's rumble; Songs that down from heaven ring;
Waving there the snow-white banner, Robed in Honor's spotless fleece;
Seraphs chant the sweet hosannah;
