THE STARS AND STRIPES.
Copyright, 1881, by Lee A Walker.
Words by Francis De Haes Janvier.
Music by George Felix Benkert.

The stars and stripes, what hand shall dare
To desecrate the flag we bear?
The flag of stars whose cheering light
Beamed through oppression's gloomy night.
The flag of stripes, whose heavenly dyes
Flashed freedom's day-spring through the skies;
Our flag, our flag, the standard of the free,
Symbol of hope and liberty.

Chorus.
The flag of stripes, whose heavenly dyes
Flashed freedom's day-spring through the skies;
Our flag, our flag, the standard of the free,
Symbol of hope and liberty.

The stars and stripes, what memories rise
Whenever that banner greets our eyes;
By patriots lx>rne o'er land and sea,
It led the way to victory.
When slaughter swept the surging main,
When carnage strewed the crimson plain,
It marked the spot where heroes stood,
It was baptized in heroes' blood.-Chorus.

The stars and stripes, what power shall stay
Immortal freedom's onward way;
The heavens are the triumphal arch
Through which she takes her mighty march.
Her mighty march, nor shall she halt
'Till, like the spangled azure vault,
O'er every land around the world
The stars And stripes shall be unfurled.-Chorus.
