A soldier stood on the battlefield
His weary watch to keep,
While the pale moon covered her mantle
O'er the souls that 'neath her sleep.
"Ah, me! " he sighed with tearful eye,
And called on Him above,
"Im far away from my children dear,
And all on earth I love."
At the bugle sound he turned once more,
The battlefield to scan,
And said "I am, whate'er my fate.
A soldier and a man."

The bugle called, he hastened forth,
The bravest in the battle's van.
Remember him who yields his life,
He is a soldier and a man.

The night-watch o'er the morn dawned,
Her light on earth to show,
And the soldier true his countrys call,
Advanced to meet the foe
Amid the din of shot and shell:
He fought with heart so brave,
'Till reeling from his faithful steed.
He found a soldier's grave.
Oh, Father! who in heaven above
Hath all things at Thy span,
Remember him who yields his life,
Is a soldier and a man.-Chorus.
