SARATOGA SONG.
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.
