Your Flag And My Flag And How It Flies T

Your flag and my flag,
And how it flies today,
In your land and my land,
And half the world away;
Rose-red and blood-red
Its stripes forever gleam,
Snow-white and soul-white,
The good forefather’s dream.
Sky-blue and true-blue,
With stars to shine aright;
The gloried guidon of the day,
A shelter in the night.

Your flag and my flag,
O, how much it holds
Your land and my land
Secure within its folds!
Your heart and my heart
Beat quicker at the sight,
Snow-kissed and wind-toss’d,
Red and blue and white,–
The one flag, the great flag,
The flag for me and you,
Glorified all else beside,
The red and white and blue.

Your flag and my flag,
To ev’ry star and stripe
The drums beat as hearts beat,
And pipers shrilly pipe.
Your flag and my flag,
A blessing in the sky;
Your hope and my hope,
It never hid a lie.
Home-land and far land,
And half the world around,
Old Glory hears the great salute,
And flutters to the sound.
