54 SONG OF THE SOLDIER.
u Forward the flag ! " e'en though heroes are falling, Our God will His own chosen standard deliver.
Star-Spangled Banner! our hopes to thee are
clinging, Lead us to victory, or wrap us in death. Detroit, April 29, 1861.
SONG OF THE SOLDIER.
BY GEORGE W. PUTNAM.
Tune " Shining Shore."
THE moon has set the signal light
Sends high its solemn warning ! We sleep upon our arms to-night And wait the battle morning.
Chords: We march beneath the Stripes and Stars,
God's banner ! let earth bless it! Yet to it every knee shall bow,
And every tongue confess it!
Again the signal light gleams forth,
And hark ! the " long roll " beating !
