Washington and Lincoln
(Henry Clay Work)
Come happy people, Oh come let us tell,
The story of Washington and Lincoln,
History's pages can never excel
The story of Washington and Lincoln
     Down through the ages an anthem shall go,
     Bearing the honors we gladly bestow;
     Till ev'ry nation and language shall know,
     The story of Washington and Lincoln;

cho: Who gave us independence
     On continent and sea,
     Who saved the glorious Union!
     And set a people free!
     This is the story, Oh happy are we,
     The story of Washington and Lincoln.

Parents to children shall tell with delight
The story of Washington and Lincoln,
Free born and freed men together recite
The story of Washington and Lincoln,
     Earth's weary bond men shall listen with cheer
     Tyrants shall tremble and traitors shall cheer
     When, in its fullness of glory they hear
     The story of Washington and Lincoln.

Though on the war cloud recorded with steel
The story of Washington and Lincoln,
Pease, only Peace, can completely reveal
The story of Washington and Lincoln,
     Thanks to the Lord for the days we behold!
     Thanks for the unsullied flag we behold!
     Thanks that to us, and in our time, was told
     The story of Washington and Lincoln.
