SONG OF THE LYON REGIMENT.
Onward, then, ye true and brave!
Heaven our country's hope defend ! He, whose arm is strong to save,
Will keep us to the end.
Onward to the battle-field,
Valiant Lyon led the brave ; He fell beneath his red-cross shield,
And fills a hero's grave ! " Onward !" was his dying word ;
Hallowed may his memory be, Who with valor drew his sword,
And fought for Liberty !
Bear aloft his glorious name !
On our standard rear it high ! We will guard his spotless fame,
And bravely do or die ! Onward, then, ye true and brave !
Your avenging swords unsheathe ; Freedom's banner proudly wave,
In victory or death !
