SONG OF THE LYON REGIMENT.
" Onward ! " then our watchword be !
" Onward ! " still our rallying cry ! For our country's liberty
We '11 conquer or we '11 die !
To her valiant sons she cries,
Up, and arm you for the fight! Meet the traitors as they rise,
And put their hordes to flight! Strike, to aid your country's cause,
Strike ! for Liberty and Right! Strike ! for Justice and the Laws,
By your glorious might!
On the bloody field of Mars,
Noble deeds must now be done; Bear aloft the Stripes and Stars,
Until the field is won. Onward, then, ye true and brave !
Rear your glorious standard high, Freedom's banner proudly wave
In death or victory !
With the sword of Liberty,
Strike foul Treason to the dust!
Let each foreign despot see That our cause is just.
