"MANY IN ONE."
Though many find bright are the stars that appear, In that flag by oar country onfurl'd, And the stripes thut are swelling in majesty there, Like a rainbow adorning the world,? Their lights are unsullied as those id the sky, By a deed that our fathers hare done, And they're leagued in as true and m holy a tie In their motto of many ia one. From the hour when those patriots fearlessly Hung That banuer of starlight abroad, Ever true to themselves, to that motto they clung, As they clung to the promise of God. And though few were the lights in the gloom of that hour, Yet the hearts that were striking below, Had God for their bulwark and truth for their power, And they Btopped 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, Where its stars shall float o\'er his head.) Aud those stars ehall increase till the iuluess of time, Its millions of cycles has run, Til the world shall have welcomed its mission sublime, And the nations of earth shall bo one. From whore our green meuntam-tops blend with the sky, And the giant St. Lawrenee is rolled, To the clime where the balmy Hesperides lie, Like tho dream of some prophet of old. They conquered, and dying bequeathed to our 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 tha father of waters divide, TUo links of our destiny canuot bo rivon "While the truth of these words shall abide, Then ohlet them glow on each helmet and brand Till our blood like our rivers shall run, Divide as we may, in our own native land, To the rest of tho world we are ono. Then up with our flag, let it stream on the air, Though our fathers are cold in their graves, They had hands that could strike, they had soul3 that could dare, And their sons wero not born to bo filavec, Up I up 1 with that banner wher'ore it may call Our millions shall rally around A Ration of freemen that moment shall fall, When it stars shall bo trailed on the ground.
