134 UNION BATTLE-HYMN.
Air—" Adesle Fideles" or "Portuguese Hymn."
M1D the battle's horror,
That fills our land with sorrow, We humbly raise our voices unto thee, Oh ! Lord ; Chorus — God of Creation,
Helper of our nation,
What Thou hast joined, oh! never
Let human treason sever,
But be our Guide forever, —
Our Lord and King !
Now is the hour That tries a Nation's power, And seals the future fate of millions yet unborn. God of Creation, &c.
Has treason bereft us Of what our fathers left us, And shall we tamely bow unto the traitor's rule ? God of Creation, &c.
By the blood that bought us — The faith our fathers taught us — We '11 guard our sacred banner while a star remains ! God of Creation, &c.
