"MANY IN ONE."
Though many and bright are the stars that appear, In that flag bj our country unfurl'd, And the stripes that are swelling in majesty there. Like a rainbow adorning the world,? Their lights we unsullied as those in the sky, l<y a deed that our fathers hare done, And they're leagued in as true and as holy a tie In their motto of many in one. Ifrem the hour when those patriots fearlessly fluag That banner of starlight abroad, Ever true to themselves, to that motto they clung, As they clang to the promise of God. And though few were the lights in the gloom of that hour, Tet the hearta that were striking below, Had God for their bulwark and truth for their power, And they stopped not to number the foe. The oppressed of the earth to that standard shall fly, "Wherever its folds shall be spread, And the exile shall feel 'tis his own native sky, Whore its stars shall float over his head.) And those stars shall increase till the iulness ol time, Its millions .of cycles has run, 'Til the world shalf havo welcomed its mission sublime, And the nations of earth shall be one. lrrom where our green mountain-tops blend with the sky, And the giant St. Lawrence is rolled, To the clime v?liere the balmy Hesperides lie, Like the dream of some prophet of old. They conquered, and dying bequeathed to onr care, Not this boundless dominion alone, But that banner whose loveliness hallows the air, And their motto of Many in One. The old Allegheny may tower to heaven, And the father of waters divide, The links of our destiny cannot bo riven While the truth of these words shall abide, Then oh let them glow on each helmet and brand Till our blood like our rivers shall run, Divide ai we may, in our own native land, To the rest of the world wo are one. Than up with our flag, let it stream on the air, Though our fathers are cold in their graves, They had hands that could striko, they had 6oals that could dare, And their sons were not born to be Blaves, Up I up t with that banner wher'ere it may eall Our millions shall rally around A nation of freemen that moment shall fall, When it sturs shall be trailed on the ground. mmmmmm ji. . n . . ?????wm i i ? jg&?Mr>.
