4lMERIB


Oh! say can you see by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thro-ug the perilous filhit.
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gailanltly streainllm;'.
And the rocket's red glare, bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the light tlat our flag was still there.


OhI, say, does that star spangled banner yet wave,
O'er the land of the fiee, and the home of the brave

THE BANNER BOOK.


On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep,

Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes

What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,

As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?

tNow it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,

In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream.


'Tis the star spangled banner, oh, long may it wave.

O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.


f i.

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore.

That the havoc of war,.and the battle's confusion,

A home and a country should leave us no more ?

Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution,


* ~*










THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER.


No refuge could save the hireling and slave.

From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave.


And the star spangled banner in triumph doth wave,

O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.


IV.


0, thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand,

.- ^ 'Between their loved homes and the war's desolation!

Blessed with victory and peace, may the Heaven-rescued land,

Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,

And this be our motto: In God is our trust!"


And the star spangled banner in triumph shall wave,

O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.

BY JOSEPH RI)DMAN DR AKE.

I

WiHlEN Freedom from her mounritain height

Unfurled her standard to the air,

She to)re the azure robe of night.

And set the stars of glory there.

She iningled with its gorgeous dyes

The milky baldric of the skies,

And striped its pure celestial white

With streaking of the morning light

Then from his mansion in the sun

She called her eagle-bearer down

And gave into his mighty hand

The symbol of her choseri land.









THE AMERICAN FLAG.


II.
Majestic monarch of the cloud,

Who rear'st aloft thy eagle form

To hear the tempest-trumpings loud,

And see the lightning-lances driven,

When stride the warriors of the storm,

And rolls the thunder-drum of heaven!

Child of the sun! to thee 'tis given

To guard the banner of the free!

To hover in the sulphur smoke,

To ward away the battle stroke,

And bid its blendings shine afar,

Like rainbows on the cloud of war-

The harbingers of victory!

lii.
Flag of the brave thy folds shall fly,

The sign of hope and triumph high;

When speaks the trumpet's signal tone,

And the long line comes gleaming on,

Ere yet the life-blood, warm and wet,

Has dimm'd the glistening bayonet,

Each soldier's eye shall brightly turn

To where thy sky-born glories burn;

And as his springy steps advance,

Catch war and vengeance from the glance;


A








THE BANNER BOOK.


And when the cannon-mouthings loud

Heave in wild wreaths the battle-shroud,

And gory sabres rise and fall

Like shoots of flame on midnight's pall-

Then shall thy meteor-glances glow,

And cowering foes shall sink, beneath

Each gallant arm that strikes below

That lovely messenger of death !


IV.

Flag of the seas! on ocean's wave,

Thy stars shall glitter o'er the brave;

When death, careering on the gale,

Sweeps darkly round the belied sail,


(/)v









THE AMERICAN FLAG.


And frighted waves rush wildly back

Before the broadside's reeling rack,

Each dying wanderer of the sea

Shall look at once to heaven and thee,

And smile to see thy splendors fly

In triumph o'er his closing eye!

Flag of the free heart's hope and home,

By angel's hands to valor given,

Thy stars have lit the welkin dome,

And all thy hues were born in heaven!

Forever float that standard sheet

Where breathes the foe that falls before us,

With Freedom's soil beneath our feet,

And Freedom's banner streaming o'er us'












THE FLAG OF OUR UNION.

BY GEORGE P. MORRIS.

I.

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 our Union forever and ever-

The Flag of our Union forever!



II.

What God in his infinite wisdom designed,

And armed' with republican thunder,

Not all the earth's despots and factions combined

Have the power to conquer or sunder.

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 our Union forever and ever-

The Flag of our Union for ever!

BY WILLIAM ROSS WALLACE.


A soUND like the sound of a tempest rolled,

And the heart of a people stirred.

For the bell of freedom at midnight tolled,

Through a fettered land was heard

And the chime still rung'

Fromf its iron tono'fle.

]* Rung in Philadelphia upon the announcement of the Declaration of Indepeielonce.
July 4tl. 177t;.










THE BANNER BOOK.


Steadily swaying to and fro;
And to some it came
As a breath of flame,
And to some as a sound of woe.

TI.
Upon the tall mountain, upon the tost wave,
It was heard by the fettered, and heard by the brave;


It was heard in the cottage, and heard in the hall,
And its chime gave a glorious summons to all,
The old sabre was sharpened, the time-rusted blade
Of the bond started out in the pioneer's glade,
Like the herald of wrath-and the host was arrayed!

IlM.
Along the tall mountain, along the tost wave,
Swept the ranks -f the bond, swept the ranks of the brave;

THE LIBERTY BELL. 11











I .





SAnd a shout as of waters went up to the dome.
_- And a sun drinking banner unfurled,
S. Like an archangel's pinion flashed out from his home,
/; Uttered freedom and hope to the world.
SO'er the mountain and tide its magnificent fold,
With a terrible glitter of azure and gold,
In the storm and the sunshine forever unrolled.
It blazed in the valley; it blazed on the mast;
It flew like a comrade abroad with the blast:
"/ .'. And the eyes of whole nations were turned to its light;
I -. ,/, And the hearts of the multitude soon
Were swayed by its stars as they shone through the night,
Like an ocean when swayed by the moon.

IV.
Again through the midnight that -bell thunders out:
And banners and torches are hurried about.
A shout as of waters, a long-uttered cry!
How it leaps, how it 'leaps from the earth to the sky!









THE BANNER BOOK


From the sky to the earth, from the earth to the sea,
Hear the chorus re-echoed, The people are free !"


V.
That old bell is still seen by the patriot's eye,
And he blesses it ever when journeying by:
Long years have passed over it, and yet every soul
Must thrill in the night to its deep, solemn roll;
For it speaks in its belfry when kissed by the blast,
Like a broad blessing breathed from the lips of the Past.
Long years will roll o'er it, and yet every chime
Must unceasingly tell of an era sublime,
And more splendid, more dear than the rest of all Time.
Oh, yes! if the flame on our altars should pale,
Let its voice but be heard, and the freemen will start,
To rekindle the fire, while he sees on the gale
All the stars, all the stripes of the flag of his heart.


12








RED, WHITE AND BLUE


RED, WHITE, AND BL-UE.

OH, Columbia, the gem of the ocean,
The home of the brave and the free;
The shrine of each patriot's devotion,
A. world offers homage to thee.
Thy mandates make heroes assemble,
When liberty's form stands in view;
Thy banners make tyranny tremble,
When borne by the red, white and blue.

CHORUS.

When borne by the red, white and blue,
When borne by the red, white and blue,
Thy banners make tyranny tremble,
When borne by the red, white and blue.


13









THE BANNER BOOK.


Sihen war waged its wide desolation,
And threatened our land to deform,
The ark then of freedom's foundation,
Columbia rode safe through the storm.
With her garland of victory o'er her,
When so proudly she bore her bold crew,
With her flag proudly floating before her,
The boast of the red, white and blue.

CHORdS.
The boast of the red, white and blue,
The boast of the red, white and blue,
With her flag proudly floating before her,
The boast of the red, white and blue.

The wine cup, the wine cup bring hither,
And fill you it up to the brim,
May the memory of Washington ne'er wither,
Nor the star of his glory grow dim.
May the service united ne'er sever,
And each to our colors prove true:
The army and navy for ever,
Three cheers for the red, white and blue.

CHORUS.
Three cheers for the red, white and blue,
Three cheers for the red, white and blue,
The army and navy for ever,
Three cheers for the red, white and blue.

OUR FLAG IS THERE. 15



















OUR FLAG IS THERE.

S OUR flag is there, our flaog is there.

We'll hail it with three loud lhuzzas

Our flag is there, our flag' is there,

Behold the glorious stripes and stars;

Stout hearts have fought for that bright flag,

Strong hands sustained it mast-head high,

And, oh! to see how proud it waves,

Brings tears of joy in every eye.


CHORUS.

Our flag is there, our flag is there,

We hair it with three loud huzzas!

Our flag is there, our flag is there,

Behold the glorious stripes and stars!









16 THE BANNER BOOK.

That flag has stood the battle's roar,

With foemen stout, with foemen brave;

Strong hands have sought that flag to lower,

And found a speedy, watery grave.

That flag is known on ev'ry shore,

SThe standard of a gallant band,

Alike sustained in peace or war,

It floats o'er freedom's happy land.


CHORUS.

Our flag" is there, our flag is there,

We hail it with three loud huzzas!

Our flag is there, our flag is there,

Behold the glorious stripes and stars.
