VP_013564 Verse 1A' top of the world, in the blue tinted sky, The silvery stars sparkled with light The lily white clouds with bright crimson were barred, As the day passed on into the night Thus our flag it was born in the heavens above on a day, when our country was new, In springing us all, our dear banner to love, and glorius deeds to do. Chorus 1So we'll fight for the stars in the blue And we'll, fight for the bars in it too, It will wave o'er the land and the sea Sweet emblem of our liberty It will wave for the weak and oppressed It will wave for the poor and distressed So we'll fight for the right, and we'll win in the fight, For our heaven born flag in heaven was blessed, So we'll blessed Verse 2So proudly aloft, unsullied and bright, It shall wave in the great God, given light, Guiding us on to victries anew, O'er the pow'rs of darkness and night And it's silvery stars and its bright, colored bars, o'er the world, in the sunlight shall gleam, Proclaiming that we, in the Land of the Free, know what liberty does mean.
