STAR OF COLUMBIA (As traditionally sung)

Southern Harmony

Columbia! Columbia! to glory arise, The queen of the world, and the child of the skies;
Thy genius commands thee, with raptures behold, While ages on ages thy splendors unfold:
Thy reign is the last and the noblest of time, Most fruitful thy soil, most inviting thy clime;
Let crimes of the East ne'er crimson thy name, Be freedom, and science, and virtue thy fame.
