Fear no danger! shun no labor! Lift up rifle, pike and sabre! Shoulder pressing close to shoulder, Let the odds make each heart bolder !
How the South's great heart rejoices At your cannon's ringing voices; For faith betrayed and pledges broken, Wrong inflicted, insults spoken.
Strong as lions, swift as eagles.
Back to their kennels hunt these beagles!
Cut the unequal bonds asunder!
Let them hence each other plunder.
Swear upon your country's altar, Never to submit or falter, 'Till the spoilers are defeated, 'Till the Lord's work is completed.
Halt not till our federation, Secures among earth's powers its station ! Then at peace, and crowned with glory, Hear your children tell the story.
If the loved ones weep in sadness, Victory soon shall bring them gladness; Exultant pride soon banish sorrow, Smiles chase tears away to-morrow.
