The Flag Of Our Union
by George Phillips Morris
“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!
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
The Flag of our Union for ever
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!
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.
