" Union and Freedom ! " our war-cry is rolling,
Now oVer the prairie, now wide o'er the billow, Hark 't is the battle, and soon will be tolling:
The knell of the soldier, who rests 'neath the willow.
Star-Spangled Banner, &c.
Banner triumphant ! though grand is thy story, We '11 stamp on thy folds, in this struggle to-day,
Deeds of our armies, transcending in glory The bravest yet chanted in Poesy's lay. Star-Spangled Banner, &c.
Wise were our fathers, and brave in the battle, But treason uprises their Union to sever,
Rouse for the fight! shout aloud 'raid War's rattle, The Union must triumph, must triumph forever ! Star-Spangled Banner, &c.
Trumpet, and ensign, and drum-beat are calling, From hill-side and valley, from mountain and river,
