OUR FLAG, OUR ARMY, AND OUR PRESIDENT! QUARTETTE.

Words by J.T. DUDLEY. Music by W.H. PERRY.

Sop'o. 1. Hither we come to stand beneath the flag,

Alto. 2. Hither we come to give our fondest thanks

Ten. 3. Hither we come to pledge anew our vows

Bass. 4. We hail thee then, thou glorious stars and stripes!

Whose stars are brightest of all stars tonight.

To those brave ones, who fearless stand tonight

To him who through the darkness of the night,

Thy folds shall wave forever proud and free!


3

Hither we come to vow again our love,

Between our homes and treason's blasting hate,

The nation's head, the saddest weight has borne,

We hail thee brave ones standing by the flag!

For those proud colors, red and blue and white;

Writing in blood their love for truth and right;

With honest heart and living faith in right;

Thy feet shall find the path to victory;

And while upon its radiance we shall gaze,

Hither we come brave brothers in the front

Hither we come to pledge anew our vows

We hail thee noble one whose name we raise


4

The pray'r upon the lips of all shall be!

To give anew our hearts and hands to thee!

And hope for peace with treason stricken dumb

Again upon our shouts with glad consent!

God bless the flag our fathers gave to us!

God bless our Grant and all his noble band!

Standing by him when first the sun went down,

Tonight with Loyal hearts our cry shall be,

God bless the glorious ensign of the free!

God bless the dauntless armies of the free;

We'll stand by him until the morn shall come.

Our flag, our Army, and our President!


5

CHORUS.

God bless the Flag our fathers gave to us!

God bless our Grant and all his noble band!

Standing by him when first the sun went down,

Tonight with loyal hearts our cry shall be,

God bless the glorious ensign of the free!

God bless the dauntless Armies of the free!

We'll stand by him until the morn shall come.

Our Flag, our Army, and our President!
