THE CONTRAST.
Air."A Wet Sheet and a Flowing Sea"
Oh ! a keen eye, and a steady hand, And a heart for the People's woe,
A will to give the stern command, And a soul that fears no woe !
Chorus:
A soul that fears no foe, my boys !
A soul that fears no foe, A will to give the right command,
And a soul that fears no foe !
For these the land is bleeding now,
For these do Freemen pray, And these upon his face and brow,
Our leader bears to-day !
Chorus:
Our leader bears to-day, my boys, &c.
But the white cravat, and the glassy eye,
And the face whose lines recall The party craft of time gone by—
Oh ! turn them to the wall!
Chorus: Oh, turn them to the wall, my boys, &c.
Oh ! a keen eye, and a steady hand, And a heart for the People's woe,
A will to give the stern command, And a soul that fears no foe !
Chorus:
A soul that fears no foe,
A soul that fears no foe, An eye, and a hand, and a heart, and a
And a soul that fears no foe !
