By Peter Peppercorn.

The North has its star, but there's one in the West,
And brighter, by far, is its ray;
A radiance it throws around liberty's shrine,
And its brightness will never decay;
Adored by the young and beloved by the old
As the greatest, the grandest, the best;
The world has its planets, but greater than all
Our emblem, the star of the West.

The lightning may flash, the thunder may crash,
And the storm-king the sky overcast,
But one star remains until time is no more-
Our emblem, the star of the West.

A century ago, when the nation was young,
And struggling its power to expand;
Down in old Virginia the star first arose.
When king-craft reigned over the land.
And soon it was greeted with love and delight,
As a boon to a people oppressed,
And hailed as a messenger sent from above.
Our emblem, the star of the West.- Chor.

And when desolation spread over the land.
In the dark days "when men's souls were tried,"
As an anchor of hope the star was still there,
A beacon to cheer and to guide;
And there it remained where the victory was won,
The greatest, the grandest, the best,
And to-day on our banner as brightly still shines
Our emblem, the star of the West.- Chorus.
