UNION SONG OF THE CELT.         263
UNION SONG OF THE CELT.
BY WILLIAM E. ROBINSON.
HAIL ! brightest banner that floats on the gale !
Flag of the country of Washington, hail! Red are thy stripes with the blood of the brave, Bright are thy stars as the sun on the wave ; Wrapt in thy folds are the hopes of the free ; Banner of Washington ! blessings on thee!
Mountain-tops mingle the sky with their snow ; Prairies lie smiling in sunshine below; Rivers, as broad as the sea, in their pride, Border thine empires, but do not divide ; Niagara's voice far out-anthems the sea ; Land of sublimity ! blessings on thee !
Hope of the world ! on thy mission sublime, When thou didst burst on the pathway of Time, Millions from darkness and bondage awoke ; Music was born when Liberty spoke; Millions to come shall yet join in the glee ; Land of the pilgrim's hope ! blessings on thee !
Traitors shall perish, and treason shall fail; Kingdoms and thrones in thy glory grow pale !
