"Unfurl the flag! let the winds caress

And lift it in rippling loveliness

Over all the wide west-world we claim

By cross and sword and in Freedom's name.

Unfurl the flag! let it curl and kiss

The zephyr that faints in the summer bliss;

It was born in storm, and its glory sprung

"\^'here the bolts (^f battle shrieked and sung.

God bless the flag! let it float, and flU

The sky with its beauty; our heartstrings thrill

To the low. sweet chant of its wind-swept bars

And the chorus of all its clustered stars."
