176 Songs That Every Child Should Know
" The word 's the man," thus nobly spake Our sires, and ne'er their trust would break; Like any oath, a German's hand, A German's grasp could faith command, A German's grasp could faith command.
If once his word the German gave, No bribe nor terror of the grave, Not woman's smile, not tyrant's might, Could move him from the path of right, Could move him from the path of right.
The truth that made our fathers great Their sons should strive to imitate; Come, take my hand, give yours to me. True Germans we will ever be, True Germans we will ever be.
Mistletoe Bough
This song is doubtless founded upon fact, and while three noble families have laid claim to the legend as having its origin with them, nobody seems satisfactorily to have settled the matter. There is considerable proof of­fered on the part of each.
Words by Haynes Bayly.
Music by H. R. Bishop.
