NATIONAL HYMN.
Words by Capt. E. Griswold.                  Music by J. W. Groschel.
Now let the thrilling- anthem rise,
O'er all the glorious land, Where tow'ring hills usurp the skies,
And valleys hroad expand. Where each majestic river rolls,
Where wave the fields of grain, Let Southern hearts and Southern souls
Repeat the exulting strain.
Chorus.—The cross and bars, its gleaming stars, Shall float o'er land and main; The cross and bars, its gleaming stars,
Shall float o'er land and main ; Confederate Sov'reign State we stand, God save our land, God save our land ; Confederate Sov'reign State we stand, God save our land, God save our land, God save our land, God save our land.
Where golden fruited orange blossoms,
Green lemon grove and bower, And where the tall magnolia looms,
With proud imperial flower, Where bursting from their ripened bolls,
The cotton spreads the plain. Let Southern hearts and Southern souls
Repeat the exulting strain.
Chorus.
