---Mormon Tabernacle Choir.--- 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. When war wing'd its wide desolation, And threaten'd the land to deform, The ark then of freedom's foundation, Columbia rode safe thro' the storm; With her garlands of vict'ry around her, When 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. The Union, the Union forever, Our glorious nation's sweet hymn, May the wreaths it has won never wither, Nor the stars of its 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 for ever, Three cheers for the red, white and blue.

(A slightly different third verse) The star spangled banner bring hither, O'er Columbia's true sons let it wave; May the wreaths they have won never wither, Nor its stars cease to shine on the brave. May thy service united ne'er sever, But hold to the colors so true; The army and navy forever, 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
