252           TO THE TENTH LEGION.
TO THE TENTH LEGION,* That passed down Broadway singing the Refrain,
" FOR GOD AND OUR COUNTRY, WJE ARE MARCHING ALONG." BY RUTH N. CROMWELTi.
MARCHING along ! marching to the war I saw them as they passed, a thousand men or more; Their bayonets were gleaming in the sun's burning
light, For God and their Country, they were marching to the fight, Marching along marching along " For God and our Country, we are marching along."
I could not see their banners, for my eyes grew
dim; I but thought of my country, and sublime grew
their hymn, Till my soul echoed back, oh! again and again, The song of the battle ! the soldiers' refrain
* New York State Volunteers.
