Henry A. Milliard

Nobly our Flag flutters o'er us to-day,
Emblem of peace, Pledge of Liberty's sway:
Its foes shall tremble and shrink in dismay,
If e'er insulted it be!
Our Stripes and Stars, loved and honored by all
Shall float forever where Freedom may call;
It still shall be the Flag of the Free,
Emblem of sweet Liberty!
Chorus:
Here we will gather Its cause to defend
Let Patriots rally and wise counsel lend;
It still shall be the Flag of the Free,
Emblem of sweet Liberty!
2. With it in beauty no Flag can compare:
All Nations honor our banner so fair.
If to insult It a Traitor should dare,
Crushed to the earth let him be!
Freedom and Progress our watch-word-to-day;
When duty calls, who dares disobey?
Honor to Thee, Thou Flag of the Free,
Emblem of sweet Liberty!
Chorus:


From Civil War Song Sheets, Series 1, Volume 1.
