The flag of our Union, O long may it wave

O’er the land of the free, the home of the brave

May no hoard of barbarians ever erase the name of Washington,

 the father of the liberties of our country from the scroll of fame;

but may the republic which he and the compatriot heroes fought to establish, stand forever, a home for the stranger, and an asylum for the oppressed; 

May it never be torn, or rent asunder, by designing, ambitious aspirants; 

and may the Eagle of America continue to rest with the stripes, and sharpen her beak again, and be prepared to fasten on the enemies of her liberty either rattlesnakes or lions; and protect our interests abroad, and at home, against invasion or predatory attacks of a foreign foe, if this government is once divided and shattered down, our days of boasted liberty is gone, and taxes burthensome and grievances to be borne, will be laid upon every hamlet and log cabin – poverty and crime would be ripe in the land,

and no man could lie down under his own vine and fig tree;

we would be an armed nation, with the iron heal of the soldier grinding to dust the labors of the farmer, with the sword of the warrior glittering before our eyes;

and the oppression of military chieftains silencing the voice of justice-
