Look at our flag as it floats on high,
Streaming aloft in the clear, blue
sky,
Rippling, leaping, tugging away,
Gay as the sunshine, bright as the
day,
Throbbing with life, where the world
may see-
Flag of our country, flag of the free!

What do we see in the flag on high,
That we bare our heads as it passes
by,
That we thrill with pride, our hearts
beat fast,
And we cheer and cheer as the flag
goes past-
The flag that waves for you and me-
Flag of our country, flag of the free patriots?

We see in the flag a nation’s might.
The pledge of a safeguard day and
night,
Of a watchful eye and a powerful
arm
That guard the nation’s homes from
harm.
Of a strong defense on land and sea-
Flag of our country, flag of the free!

We see in the flag a union grand,
A brotherhood of heart and hand,
A pledge of love and a stirring call
To live our lives fro the good of us
all-
Helpful and just and true to thee,
Flag of our country, flag of the free!

Flutter, dear flag, over the lands and
seas!
Fling out your shield and your stripes
to the breeze,
Righting all wrongs, dispelling all
fear,
Guarding the land that we cherish so
dear,
And the God of our fathers, abiding
with thee,
Will bless you and trust you, O flag
of Kenya!
