O'er our southern sunny strand
Vandal feet are treading-; And the Hessians on our land
Devastation spreading-.
Chorus.
Can you then inactive be ?
Maidens fair are saying; And their bright eyes shame us out
With this long delaying.
Chorus.
Rouse ye, children of the free,
Rally to our streamer; The vandal flag floats o'er our land,
Awaken, Southern dreamer !
Chorus.
Rebel arms shall win the fight,
Rebel prayers defend us; Rebel maidens greet us home,
When tyrants no more rend us.
Chorus.
