The text of the song has two eight-line stanzas, each with chorus. The first verse as follows:
Nobly our Flag flutters o’er us to-day,
Emblem of peace, Pledge of Liberty’s sway;
Its foes shall tremble and shrink in dismay.
If e’er insulted It be!
Our Stripes and Stars, loved and honored by all
Shall float forever where Freedom may call:
It still shall be the Flag of the Free,
Emblem of sweet Liberty!
