FOURTH NEW JERSEY VOLUNTEERS. 269
Fought at Monmouth and at Trenton, And crossed the Delaware.
With bloody feet they made their marks,
Our liberty to gain ; New-Jersey Fourth, the time may come
For us to do the same.
And when this conflict's at an end,
Shall stop the cannon's noise, I ever shall remember well
The Fourth New-Jersey boys.
Oh ! yes, our cause must surely win,
That flag must float as free — Six hundred thousand volunteers
Shall gain the victory.
So now farewell, brave volunteers,
Till on the field we meet: May heaven bless each Jerseyman,
Who never knows defeat.
