Songs That Every Child Should Know
For life and death, for woe and weal, Thy peerless chivalry reveal, And gird thy beauteous limbs with steel, Maryland! My Maryland!
Come! 't is the red dawn of the day,
Maryland! Come, with thy panoplied array,
Maryland! With Ringgold's spirit for the fray, With Watson's blood at Monterey, With fearless Lowe and dashing May,
Maryland! My Maryland!
Thou wilt not cower in the dust,
Maryland! Thy beaming sword shall never rust,
Maryland! Remember Carroll's sacred trust; Remember Howard's warlike thrust, And all thy slumb'rers with the just,
Maryland! My Maryland!
Dear mother, burst the tyrant chain,
Maryland! Virginia should not call in vain,
Maryland! She meets her sisters on the plain " Sic Semper! " 't is the proud refrain That baffles minions back amain,
Maryland! Arise, in majesty again,
Maryland! My Maryland!
