O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!

Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
Flag of the free, Sing we praises to thee;
Shield our homes, shield our land,
Noble flag of the free;
Emblem of peace, wave in triumph wave!
Flag of the free,
May thy stars ever wave
O'er the land of the free,
And the home of the brave.

Flag of the free, Waving high in the blue,
We will stand for the right!
Borne thro' the strife and the thunder of war;
Banner so great, with starry light,
Float strongly ever from mountain to shore!

Flag of the free, O, flag of the brave!
We will stand for the right!
Chosen of God while His might we adore;
In Liberty's van for manhood of man,
Symbol of right thro' the years passing o'er!

Emblem of freedom, a hope to the slave,
Emblem honored afar!
Spread thy fair folds but to shield and to save;
Scatter each cloud that would darken a star;
Emblem of liberty, long may it wave!
