Great God, who guides their battles
Whose cause is just and true, Inspire our bold commander,
The course he should pursue. He ordered Arnold forward,
And Brooks to follow on; The enemy was routed !
Our liberty was won!
Then burning all their luggage,
They fled with haste and fear, Burgoyne with all his forces,
To Saratogue did steer; And Gates, our brave commander,
Soon after him did hie, Resolving he would take them,
Or in the effort die.
As we came nigh the village,
We overtook the foe; They'd burned each house to ashes,
Like all where'er they go.
