Stand Up for the Flag!

1865. Words by Mary Ann Kidder, music by Stephen C. Foster, arranged by Mrs. E.A. Parkhurst, Respectfully Dedicated to the People

Stand up for the Flag of our country,

One banner in peace and war,

Determined, though traitors assail it,

To cherish each stripe and each star.

As proudly today in its beauty,

It gives its bright folds to the sun,

And when our forefathers baptized it

An emblem of victories won.
