SONG OF THE MICHIGAN THIRD. 135
Souls of heroes o'er us Are joining in our chorus, As onward we are marching unto triumph or death! God of Creation, &c.
Of our faults convict us,
For our sins afflict us, < But spare our blessed Union, oh ! Lord, we implore. God of Creation, Helper of our Nation, What Thou hast joined, oh ! never Let human treason sever, But be our Guide forever — Our Lord and King !
—♦— SONG OF THE MICHIGAN THIRD.
DEDICATED TO MISS KATE MrGINLEY.
FROM our peaceful homes in the far Northwest
We hastened lon£ ago, To rescue the Union's starry flag
From the clutch of the traitor-foe; And the tramp of our marching column
A hopeful promise gave, Ere Sumter's echoes ceased to ring
O'er Michigan's startled wave.
