Maine Lumberjacks         191
And when the war is over,
And peace returns once more, They'll tell of your great sacrifice,
In songs, from shore to shore.
4 Oh, Rheims, the world it feels the loss
Of that historic pile, Where kings and queens, within whose walls,
Have worn a heavenly smile. And with bowed head, and knee bent low
Before the altar there They thanked the Giver of all good,
For peace in silent prayer.
5 There standing on the hilltop,
And the valley far below, Watching the contending armies
As they move to and fro, And banners proudly floating
Amidst the cannon's roar, Oh, Thou Great God of Nations,
Bring peace to them once more.
