May God Protect Columbia.

May 21, 2010

A Patriotic Hymn.

—John Rogers Thomas.

MAY God protect Columbia,
And grant she still may be
The hallow’d home of Liberty,
The glory of the free!
Still faithul to the heritage
Our fathers left of yore;
A shining light to all the world,
Both now and evermore.
 
Then long live dear Columbia,
And may she ever be
The hallow’d home of Liberty,
The glory of the free!
 
May God protect Columbia,
Thro’out her wide domain.
From East to West, from North to South,
May peace and plenty reign;
May justice, truth and happiness
Extend o’er all the land,
And universal brotherhood
Unite each heart and hand.
 
Then long live dear Columbia,
And may she ever be
The hallow’d home of Liberty,
The glory of the free!
 
May God protect Columbia.
Our hope and our desire!
And ev’ry true and loyal heart
To worthy deeds inspire.
Where Learning’s light is ever free,
And Ign’rance doom’d to fall.
There may our flag for ever wave,
Triumphant over all!
 
Then long live dear Columbia,
And may she ever be
The hallow’d home of Liberty,
The glory of the free!
 
May God protect Columbia.
When foes her peace assail!
And guide the glorious ship of state
Triumphant thro’ the gale.
And so our country’s flag shall wave
Resplendent as of yore,
The emblem of true Liberty,
From shore to farthest shore.
 
Then long live dear Columbia,
And may she ever be
The hallow’d home of Liberty,
The glory of the free!
