230                     CA VALR Y-S ONG.
And the victory shall be ours, Forever rising in our might, Shouting the battle-cry of Freedom. The Union forever, &c.
CAVALRY-SONG.
BY CHARLES GODFREY LELAND.
WEAPONED well, to war we ride, With sabres ringing by our side
The warning-knell of death to all,
Who hold the holiest cause in thrall; The sacred Right Which grows to Might,
The day which dawns in blood-red light.
Weaponed well, to war we ride, To conquer, tide what may betide, For never yet, beneath the sun, Was battle by the devil won;
For what to thee
Defeat may be, Time makes a glorious victory.
