The Marine's Hymn

From the Halls of Montezuma

To the shores of Tripoli,

We will fight out country's battles

In the air, on land and sea.

First to fight for right and freedom

And to keep our honor clean.

We are proud to claim the title

Of United States Marine.


Our flag's unfurl'd to ev'ry breeze

From dawn to setting sun

We have fought in ev'ry clime and place

Where we could take a gun.

In the snow of far off northern lands,

And in sunny tropic scenes,

You will find us always on the job—

The United States Marines.


Here's health to you and to our corps,

Which we are proud to serve;

In many a strife we've fought for life,

And never lost our nerve.

If the Army and the Navy

Ever look on Heaven's scenes,

They will find the streets are guarded

By United States Marines.
