I34 Songs That Every Child Should Know
Immortal patriots, rise once more, Defend your rights, defend your shore! Let no rude foe, with impious hand, Let no rude foe, with impious hand, Invade the shrine where sacred lies, Of toil and blood, the well-earned prize, While off'ring peace, sincere and just, In Heav'n we place a manly trust, That truth and justice will prevail, And ev'ry scheme of bondage fail. Firm, united, let us be, etc.
Behold the chief who now commands, Once more to serve his country stands, The rock on which the storm will beat, The rock on which the storm will beat; But arm'd in virtue, firm and true, His hopes are fix'd on Heav'n and you. When hope is sinking in dismay, When glooms obscur'd Columbia's day, His steady mind, from changes free, Resolv'd on death or liberty. Firm, united, let us be, etc.
