THE PATRIOTS HYMN. 3] 7
THE PATRIOT'S HYMN.
BY REV. J. F. MIKES.
Air — "America."
WHILE the loud drum and fife Angrily call to strife,
Still let us pray, Pray God that wars may cease, Pray God to give us peace, Pray God our hearts release
From discord's sway.
Yet if the sword must be Guardian of Liberty,
Unsheathe its blade ! Grasping the trusty brand, Heart joined to heart, we '11 stand, One firm, united band,
God giving aid.
Shame to the coward come, Death be the traitor's doom,
Perish his name ! True be their hearts who rear Our starry flag in air —
