This Is Our Countrys Celebration

This is our country’s celebration,
A hundred years has borne us on;
Freedom and God were its salvation,
Tis rock was Right, by this it won.

Hurrah! hurrah! for our country’s banner,
Let its bright folds remain unfurl’d,
Till ev’ry nation learns the tidings,
Freedom and truth for all the world.

Columbia’s hope is in her children,
Its flag they’ll bear thro’ many a fight,
Till ev’ry nation learns its freedom,
And serve our God with freedom’s light. [Chorus]

Then lift on high this glorious banner,
Our country’s God to thee we sing;
Let its bright folds protect us ever,
And cov’r it with thy shelt’ring wing. [Chorus]
