214 HYMN OF THE CORPS &AFRIQUE. HYMN OF THE CORPS D'AFRIQUE.
BY J. C. HAGEN.
Tune — "Hail to the Chief."
GLORY to God, who our fetters has broken ! Filled be our hearts with thanksgiving and praise ! Glory to God for the word He has spoken — The word that to freemen a people can raise ; Giving us strength and will Bravely our place to fill, Till none so blind but our manhood can see; Teaching the traitor throng, Blasting the earth so long, All in God's image made shall be free!
Proudly the star-spangled banner waves o'er us;
Dark though the deeds 'neath its folds to us done, Now like an angel of promise before us, Cheering us onward, it gleams in the sun.
Never again to wave
Over the hapless slave, Terror of tyrants for aye it shall be ;
All 'neath its folds who dwell
Shall the glad tidings tell — Where that blessed banner floats, man is free!
