38 TEMPERANCE REFORM
46 6s. & 8s.
1 PLEDG'D in a noble cause, We here each other greet: And bound by temp'rance laws,
As friends and brothers meet, To make a full determin'd stand Against the foe that rules our land.
2 'Tis true, the work is great;
Our army is but small; The foe is potentate;
But, if united all In close array, our little band Shall chase intemp'rance from the land.
3 Then onward let us move,
Our cause is good and great; We'll put to flight the foe,
And renovate the state ; Nor for a moment quarter give; Resolv'd for this to work and live.
1 DAUGHTER of nations! awake from thy slum-
Awake ! for thy foe is oppressing thee sore; Down the dark stream of intemp'rance what numbers,
Are urging their way to eternity's shore ! Daughter of nations, awake from thy slumbers,
Awake, e'er thou fall to recover no more.
2 Now we can sing with thanksgivings to heaven,
Daughter of nations the morning hath gleamed, The day-star of temp'rance ascendeth the skies;
Awake to the light that from heaven hath beamed, No more let the darkness o'ershadow thine eyes.
Daughter of nations the morning hath gleamed.
