52                          PRAISES AND THANKSGIVINGS.
3 We hail with joy unceasing
The band whose pledge is given ; Whose numbers are increasing,
Amid the smiles of heaven ; Their virtues never failing,
Shall lead to brighter days, When holiness prevailing,
Shall fill the earth with praise.
67                        7s. & 6s.
1  FRIENDS of freedom ! swell the song; Young and old, the strain prolong, Make the temp'rance army strong,
And on to victory.
2  Lift your banners, let them wave, Onward march a world to save; Who would fill a drunkard's grave,
And bear his infamy ?
3  Shrink not when the foe appears ; Spurn the coward's guilty fears ; Hear the shrieks, behold the tears
Qf ruin'd families !
4  Raise the cry in every spot—
" Touch notTaste notHandle not," Who would be a drunken sot,
The worst of miseries ?
. 5 Give the aching bosom rest; Carry joy to every breast; Make the wretched drunkard blest, By living soberly.
6 Raise the glorious watchword high— " Touch notTaste not till you die!" Let the echo reach the sky,
And earth keep jubilee.
