SOJVGS OF WAR AND PEACE 177
DAUGHTERS OF AMERICA.
Ring out, ye bells, your sweetest chimes; Sing, all ye poets, dulcet rhymes; Shout loud, ye crowds, in strongest praise; Shine out, fair sun, in softest rays,
And dance, ye rippling waters. For Freedom's sons will sing a song, That in a chorus, high and strong, Shall sounding ring, from sea to sea, Whose grandest harmony shall be,
America's true daughters.
Oh, they are loyal, brave and true, And fair the red, and white and blue, That in the nation's colors rise, Shine in their cheeks and brows and eyes
And glow upon their banners. From ocean shore to mountain crest; From north and south and east and west; From all the bright and beauteous land, They come, a blessing-laden band,
And singing sweet hosannahs.
With cheering words from such a mouth As thine, oh daughter of the south! And love from such a loyal breast As thine, oh daughter of the west!
