OUR FLAG IS HALF MAST HIGH
Words and Music by H. W. Luther.
See our flag is half-mast high, And our na---tion's bow'd in grief. Eve--ry heart re-peats the sigh, We have
lost a No-ble chief. Eve-ry loy-al heart is sad, Man-tled in the deep-est gloom; Earth in mourn-ing is clad, All seems si-lent as the tomb.
SOPRANO, ALTO, TENOR, BASS
Our Flag is half mast high, But we need no warn-ing,
now, Lin-colns name will Nev-er die, It is written on each brow.
Every Nation, every Clime__ _Speak of him in terms of praise; Every act was so Sublime,. And so friendly were his ways; Always striving good to do, Never wearied of Command, He was Firm, Faithful and True, God sent him to save our land. CHORUS Our flag is half mast high, But we need no warning now, Lincoln's name will Never die, It is written on each brow.
While we moan the sad, sad hour, That our Noble Chieftain fell, We must bow to God's high power, He who doeth all things well; Vain are wreaths to bind his brow, Vain are songs to sing his praise, Better that we all should now, Strive to imitate his ways. CHORUS Our flag is half mast high, But we need no warning now, Lincoln's name will Never die, It is written on each brow.
