On Forever, Illinois!
Words by W. C. LANGDON
Music by J. LAWRENCE ERB
2.
Illinois! The times are calling
Souls that fear no sacrifice! Men for Liberty are falling;
Will your sons refuse the price? Scorning danger) on with joy!
On forever, Illinois! On through death! On, on with joy!
On forever, Illinois!
3.
Illinois! Thy meed of glory
That all men, till years are dust, Shall thy sons, high famed in story,
Silent, heaven-borne eagles, trust! On through death! On, on with joy!
On forever, Illinois! Eagle-pinioned, on with joy!
On forever, Illinois!
