SONG OF TEE VOLUNTEERS. 245
From hill-top and valley are pouring the throng, To join in the battle they are marching along. Marching along, &c.
Oh ! ye who have slumbered so long at your ease, And dreamed in your quiet homes visions of peace, Arouse from your slumber, and crush out the wrong, And join in our army now marching along. Marching along, &c.
Awake to the glory, awake in your might, Ye sons of the heroes who conquered in fight The proud Queen of Ocean, so vain and so strong, Who scorns our brave troops that are marching along. Marching along, &c.
Awake to the peril that threatens our land, Arm, arm for the conflict, and with the keen brand Give blows to the traitor, both heavy and strong, And join our brave band that is marching along. Marching along, &c.
In vain shall the flag of the Rebel uprear, We '11 crush the vile emblem of pride and of fear, And raise our own banner, with shouting and song, And bear it aloft while marching along. Marching along, &c.
