Unfurl the Glorious Banner.

Unfurl the glorious banner, let it sway upon the breeze,
The emblem of our country's pride on land and on the seas;
The emblem of our liberty, borne proudly in the wars.
The hope of every freeman, the gleaming stripes and stars.

Then unfurl the glorious banner out upon the welcome air,
Read the record of the olden time upon its radiance there:
in the battle it shall lead us, and our banner ever be
A beacon-light to glory and a guide to victory.

The glorious band of patriots who gave the land its birth.
Have writ with steel in history the record of Its worth;
From east to west, from sea to sea. from pole to tropic sun.
Will eyes grow bright and hearts throb high at the name of Washington.

Ah! proudly should we bear It. and guard this flag of ours, - Chorus.
Borne bravely in its infancy amid the darker hours;
Only the brave may bear it. a guardian it shall be
For those who well have won the right to bestow of liberty.- Chorus.

The meteor flag of 'seventy-six, long may it wave in pride,
To tell the world how nobly the patriot fathers died;
When from the shadows or their night outburst the brilliant sun,
It bathed in light the stripes and stars, and lo! the field was won. - Cho.
