- This is the second of two printings. Ditson’s usual practice was to deposit a first printing, for copyright only, that had identical music but no covers.
- In December 1918, Ditson created a subseries of choral works entitled "Choruses of Peace and Victory." Judging by catalogue number, Conant's piece was the first of these; and together with eight others, it was advertised in a Boston Symphony Orchestra program on December 30, 1918, though it was not copyrighted until eight days later. The full list of nine compositions was included on the front cover of the eventual publication.
- No piano rolls or recordings have been found.
- [verse 1] Sing we a song today, song to our Mother, / Homage we bring to her, the Fairest and Best; / True are all hearts to her, owning no other, / Sing, North and South, chant her praise, East and West!
- [refrain 1] Motherland, Motherland, land free and glorious, / In ev'ry noble cause be thou victorious! / Motherland, Motherland, land free and glorious, / God save America, our Motherland.
- [verse 2] Come, let us bring today gifts to our Mother, / Haste we to honor her nor wait her command; / Freely we offer them, one with another, / Knowledge and treasure, and good right hand.
- [refrain 2]
- [verse 3] Mother of Freemen, own our devotion; / Make us thy messengers thro' peace or thro' strife; / Sound we thy clarion call o'er land and o'er ocean, / Honor and Freedom are dearer than life! /
- [refrain 3] Motherland, Motherland, land free and glorious, / In ev'ry noble cause be thou victorious! / Motherland, Motherland, land free and glorious, / God save America, God save America, / God save America, our Motherland.
