We strike for the South: mountains, valley and plain, For the South we will conquer, again and again, Her day of salvation and triumph is nigh, Our's then be the watchword, "We conquer or die."
GOD WILL DEFEND THE RIGHT.
Words and Music by a Lady of Richmond. [The music of this song can be obtained of the Oliver Ditson Co., Boston, Mass.]
Sons of the South arise,
Rise in your matchless might, Your war-cry echo to the skies,
"God will defend the right." Let haughty tyrants know,
Our sunny land shall be In spite of every foe,
Home of the brave and free.
Chorus.—Sons of the South arise,
Rise in your matchless might, Your war-cry echo to the skies, "God will defend the right."
Our flag shall proudty stream,
Defiant of assault, Bars of rainbows brightest beam,
Arid stars from Heaven's blue vault.
