10 WE'RE FOR FREEDOM THROUGH THE LAND-
Am—" Old Granite State."
We are coming,we are coming! freedom's battle is begun! No hand, shall furl her banner ere her victory be won! Our shields are locked for liberty, and mercy goes before; Tyrants tremble in your citadel! oppression shall be o'er.
We are all for Fremont, We are all for Dayton—-We are all for Liberty and Justice, $ And for Freedom through the land.
We have hatred, dark and deep, for the fetter and the
thong ; We bring light for prisoned spirits, for the captive's wail
a song; We are coming, we are coming! and '' No league with
tyrant man," Is emblazoned on our banner, while our Fremont leads
the van!
We are all for Fremont, &c.
We are coming, we are coming! but we wield no battle
brand : We are armed with truth and justice, and our ballot's in
our hand ; And our voice which swells for freedom—freedom now
and ever more— Shall be heard as ocean's thunder, when they burst upon
the shore !
We are all for Fremont, &c.
We are coming,we are coming! not as comes the tempest's
wrath, When the frown of desolation sits brooding o'er its path : But with mercy, such as leaves his holy signet-light upon The air in lambent beauty, when the darkening storm is
gone.
We are all for Fremont, &c.
