THE “STARS AND BARS.”

SEE yonder bright flag, as it floats on the breeze;
It is feared by its foes, though young on the seas;
As a bird on the ocean, ’tis met all alone,
But a deed of dishonor it never has known.
In defending its rights, much blood has been shed;
As an emblem of this, see its borders all red.
Then look at the centre, the blue and the white–
An assurance our cause is true, just, and right.
O, long may it float o’er the ocean’s dark breast,
Till sun, moon, and stars sink forever to rest;
And its gallant defenders forever prove true;
With this wish, flag of freedom, I’ll bid thee adieu!
With this wish, flag of freedom, I’ll bid thee adieu!

I'm a lover of God and His Son Jesus Christ. In addition I love to make yesterday's words come alive through the republishing of good and profitable books of old. The Civil War project is an ongoing labor of love. - Karan
