***** Fly Her High
Today fly the flag high;
that’ll bring a reverent sigh.
Blue as blue, and red and white;
raise her to a glorious height!
Honor those who for her died;
they evermore will not hide
from our hearts and our souls,
as they are remembered for tolls
of death and bravery in our wars,
and for the sacrifices they bore.
Remember them with this flag of “night”!
Let nothing honor deter, but pray of their might!
