|QUOTATION:||Your flag and my flag,|
And how it flies to-day
In your land and my land
And half a world away!
Rose-red and blood-red
The stripes for ever gleam;
Snow-white and soul-white
The good forefathers dream;
Sky-blue and true-blue, with stars to gleam aright
The gloried guidon of the day; a shelter through the night.
