274         THE ARMY TO THE PEOPLE.
THE ARMY TO THE PEOPLE.
BY CAKOLINE A. MASON.
"MEN of the North ! ye are true, ye are strong !
Give us a watchword to cheer us along; Write on our banners, in letters of fire, Words that shall hearten, enoble, inspire ; Words that shall strike to the heart of the foe Terror and trembling wherever we go ; Give us this watchword to hear through the fight: " Freedom and Fatherland, God and the Right! "
" Freedom " for all who are weak and oppressed " Fatherland, God, and the Right! " For the rest, Leave that to us ! With a watchword so true, What shall be lacking that brave hearts can do ? Soon, from the Gulf to the border, o'er moat, O 'er battlement, fortress, that banner should float, Blazoned all over with letters of light: " Freedom and Fatherland, God and the Right! "
Men of the North ! ye are firm, ye are leal! Firmer than granite and truer than steel! Loving and loyal, this only remains : Strike from the bondman his fetters and chains !
