The Seal of Liberia
Lyrics:
All hail, Liberia, hail!                                                
All hail, Liberia, hail                                                   
This glorious land of liberty
Shall long be ours.
Though new her name,
Green be her fame,
And mighty be her powers,

(repeat last two clauses)

In joy and gladness
With our hearts united,
We'll shout the freedom
Of a race benighted,
Long live Liberia, happy land!
A home of glorious liberty,
By God's command!

(repeat last two clauses)

All hail Liberia hail,                                                   
All hail Liberia hail                                                          
In union strong success is sure
We cannot fail!
With God above
Our rights to prove
We will o'er all prevail,

(repeat last three clauses)

With heart and hands
Our country's cause defending
We'll meet the foe
With valour unpretending.
Long live Liberia's happy land!
A home of glorious liberty,
By God's command!

(repeat last  Clause)
The Lone Star Forever!!!

Flag of Liberia
When freedom raised her glowing form on Montserrado's verdant height, she set within the doom of night, amidst low ring stars and thunderstorms, the star of liberty - And seizing from the waking morn, its burnished shield of golden flame. She lifted in her proud name and raised a people long forlorn to noble destiny.

The Lone Star forever! The Lone Star forever! O long may it float over land and over sea. Desert it, no never! Uphold it, forever! O shout for the Lone Star banner, All hail.
