The Flag of the Union

The Flag Of Our Union

by George Phillips Morris

spacing image
“A song for our banner?” – The watchword recall
Which gave the Republic her station:
“United we stand – divided we fall!” –
It made and preserves us a nation!
spacing image

The union of lakes – the union of lands –
The union of States none can sever –
The union of hearts – the union of hands –
And the Flag of the Union for ever
And ever!
The Flag of our Union for ever
spacing image
What God in his mercy and wisdom designed,
And armed with his weapons of thunder,
Not all the earth’s despots and factions combined
Have the power to conquer or sunder!

spacing image
Oh, keep that flag flying! – The pride of the van!
To all other nations display it!
The ladies for union are all to a – man!
But not to the man who’d betray it.

Thanks to for the poem
