Columbia, The Gem Of The Ocean

Lyrics

O, Columbia! the gem of the ocean,
The home of the brave and the free,
The shrine of each patriot's devotion,
A world offers homage to thee.
Thy mandates make heroes assemble
When Liberty's form stands in view;
Thy banners make tyranny tremble.

When borne by the Red, White and Blue!
When borne by the Red, White and Blue!
When borne by the Red, White and Blue!
Thy banners make tyranny tremble
When borne by the Red, White and Blue!

The wine cup, the wine cup bring hither,
And fill you it true to the brim!
May the wreaths they have won never wither,
Nor the star of their glory grow dim!
May the service united ne'er sever,
But they to their colors prove true!
The Army and Navy forever,
Three cheers for the red, white and blue,
Three cheers for the red, white and blue,
Three cheers for the red, white and blue,
The Army and Navy forever,
Three cheers for the red, white and blue.

I learned a second verse as a child: When war winged its wide desolation and threatened this land to deform, the ark then of Freedon's Salvation Columbia rode safe through the storm. with garlands of victory around her where so proudly she bore her brave crew, with her flag proudly floating before her, the boast of the red, white and blue. the boast of the red, white and blue, the boast of the red, white and blue. with her flag proudly floating before her, the boast of the red, white and blue.
