Let fear and unmanliness vanish before ye ;
Trust in the Rock who will shelter the righteous ; Plant firmly each step on the soil of the free,— A heritage left by the sires who bled for us, May each heart be bounding, When trumpets are sounding, And th© dark traitors shall strive to surround ye ; The great God of battle Can still the war-rattle, And brighten the land with a sunset of glory.
THE SOUTHERN FLAG.
Tune—" A Wet Sheet and a Flowing Sea."
Three cheers for the Southern flag,
That floats upon the gale, Once more fling out its flapping folds,
And make its foeman quail. And make each foeman quail, my boys,
While, like an earthquake roar, Goes forth our war cry through the land,
For liberty once more.
Chorus.—Three cheers for the Southern flag, That floats above the gale, Once more fling out its flapping folds, And make its foeman quail.
