This Flag

When I look in our bright blue sky 
And see our flag waving 
My heart fills up with patriots pride 
Cause she’s surely worth our saving 
Brave men and women both have died 
This flag to let us bless 
To stand erect our chests thrust out 
For I can do no less 
The honor that I feel within 
My beating heart and soul 
And know that God has given me 
A precious gift to hold 
When she passes by 
I’ll stand and salute 
This cloth that defines me 
For I can never let her fall, of this I’m resolute 
For knowing we are free today 
To live a life that’s true 
Because this flag waves ore our head 
Give her the glory she’s surly due
