All the Northmen's forces coming-; Hark ! the distant rapid drumming-:
Awake, awake, awake in Texas! Prouder ranks than theirs were driven, When our Mexic ties were riven;
Awake, awake, awake in Texas.
Chorus.
Gird your loins, with sword and sabre; Give your lives to freedom's labor;
Awake, awake, awake in Texas! What though ev'ry heart be sadden'dó What though all the land be redden'dó
Awake, awake, awake in Texas!
Chorus.
Shall this boasting, mad invader, Trample Texas and degrade her?
Awake, awake, awake in Texas ! By our fathers' proud example, Texas soil they shall not trample;
Awake, awake, awake in Texas!
Chorus.
Texans! meet them on the border; Charge them into wild disorder;
Awake, awake, awake in Texas! Hew the vandals down before you, Till the last inch- they restore you;
Awake, awake, awake in Texas!
Chorus.
