1. THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER.

(B flat.) Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light, What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last

gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro’ the clouds

of the fight, O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly

streaming? And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there.

Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'ex the land of the free and the home of the

brave?

Oh, thus be it ever when freedmen shall stand Between their loved homes and the war's desola

tion; Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n-rescued

land Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserved us

a nation. Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, And this be our motto: “In God is our trust!”

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall

wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

2. AMERICA.

(F.)

My country, 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,

Of thee I sing :
Land where my fathers died !

j Land of the pilgrims' pride! From ev'ry mountain side

Let freedom ring!

My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,

Thy name I love:
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture thrills

Like that above.

Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees

Sweet freedom's song:
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break-

The sound prolong.

Our fathers' God, to Thee,
Author of liberty,

To Thee we sing:
Long may our land be bright
With freedom's holy light;
Protect us by Thy might,

Great God, our King!

3. BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC.

(B flat.)

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the

Lord; He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of

wrath are stored; He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible

swift sword;
His truth is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred

1 circling camps; They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews

and damps; I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and

flaming lands; His day is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah! etc.

He hath sounded forth the trumpet that shall never

call retreat; He is sifting out the hearts of men before His juig

ment seat. Oh, be swift, my soul to answer Him! be jubilant,

my feet! Our God is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah! etc.

4. THE RED, WHITE, AND BLUE.

(A flat.)

O Columbia, the gem of the ocean,

The home of the brave and the free,
The shrine of each patriot's devotion,

A world offers homage to thee.
Thy mandates make heroes assemble,

When Liberty's form stands in view;
Thy banners make tyranny tremble,
When borne by the red, white, and blue!

When borne by the red, white, and blue !
When borne by the red, white, and blue!

Thy banners make tyranny tremble
When borne by the red, white, and blue !

The star-spangled banner bring hither,

O'er Columbia's true sons let it wave, May the wreaths they have won never wither,

Nor its stars cease to shine on the brave: May thy service, united ne'er sever,

But hold to their colors so true;
The army and navy forever,
Three cheers for the red, white, and blue !

Three cheers for the red, white, and blue !
Three cheers for the red, white, and blue !

The army and navy forever,
Three cheers for the red, white, and blue !

5. BATTLE CRY OF FREEDOM.

(A fiat.) Yes, we'll rally round the flag, boys, we'll rally once

again, Shouting the battle cry of freedom ! We will rally from the hillside, we'll rally from the

plain,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

The Union forever, hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitor and up with the stars!
While we rally round the flag, boys, rally once

again, Shouting the battle cry of freedom. We are springing to the call of our brothers gone

before, Shouting the battle cry of freedom! And we'll fill the vacant ranks with a million free

men more, Shouting the battle cry of freedom !

The Union forever, hurrah, boys, hurrah! etc.
