196                    " GREENBA CKS."
To buy half the thrones of Europe, With the crowns tossed in to boot.
Pledge to our buried fathers,
That sons of patriot-sires, On Freedom's sacred altars,
Relight their glorious fires That fortune, life, and honor
To our country's cause we give Fortune and life may perish,
Yet the Government shall live.
Pledge to our unborn children,
That, free from blot or stain, The flag hauled down at Sumter,
Shall yet float free again And, cleansed from foul dishonor,
And rebaptized in blood, Wave o'er the land forever,
To Freedom and to God!
