268 FOURTH NEW JERSEY VOLUNTEERS.
Then when, amid the cannon's roar,
The heavy blows you strike For Union and for Liberty,
God will protect the Right.
But should you in the conflict fall,
When Victory is the cry, I know it will be facing them —
A soldier's death you '11 die.
Cheer up, cheer up, brave volunteers,
Whate'er our fate may be, We '11 stand up for that noble flag,
Our homes and liberty.
A name you bear, brave Jersey Fourth,
No other can excel, And when you to the conflict go,
Your actions there will tell
That Jersey blood is in us still,
And like a tide will rise, Whenever traitors trample on
The flag we dearly prize.
Jerseymen, remember still, Our fathers with gray hair
