Henry O'Meara Ballads of America

Decoration

THE FLAG ABOVE THE SCHOOL

UNFURL our emblem free -
A star-lit bond to be -
Our symbolled Love;
May every ray abide,
A glory, as a guide,
Our Learning's course beside,
And flame above.
 
There let its impulse glow,
Each line glad lessons show
That youth may learn;
Clear in their beams combined,
In league of stars divined -
Freedom in Union twined
May all discern.
 
Banner whose sign we sing,
Whose themes proud visions bring,
We hail thee now;
With peerless past in view,
Proffer a future true,
And loyal ties renew
With free souls' vow!

WELCOME TO THE WHITE FLEET CONTENTS ISABELLA
