THE SOLDIER'S MISSION.
By A. W. Morse.
Haste thee, falter not, noble patriot band, Bravely meet thy lot, firm maintain thy stand, God, the God of War, who defends the just, Give thine arm the power to defend thy trust.
Thy country called thine aid, prompt thine answer came: " We'll draw our battle blade, and shield our country's name, 'Till our firm demand shall have been proclaimed, Justice through the land—equal rights maintained."
Welcome, welcome, then, to thy happy home,
Warm hearts wait thee, when thou mayst thus return
But shouldst thou fall in defense of right
With grateful hearts we'll all cherish thy memory bright.
Infantry Button.
