34 THE SWORD, FLAG, AND PLOUGH.
THE SWORD, FLAG, AND PLOUGH.
Air "Bed, White, and Blue:'
I. UNSHEATHED is the sword of the nation !
Baptized in the blood of the brave, The blade shall be Freedom's salvation To break the last bond of the slave. From river and mountain and valley,
Goes upward the patriot's vow, And the legions of Liberty rally,
To follow the Sword, Flag, and Plough. Chorus To follow the Sword, Flag, and Plough, To follow the Sword, Flag, and Plough ;
And the legions of Liberty rally To follow the Sword, Flag, and Plough !
ir.
Unfurl the Free Banner wherever
The dawnings of victory gleam, And perish the traitor's endeavor
To darken fair Liberty's dream ! The echoes of triumph are ringing
Where heroes are conquering now, And the valor of Freed-men is bringing
Success to the Sword, Flag, and Plough !
