Remember Carroll's sacred trust, Remember Howard's warlike thrust, And all thy slumberers with the just,
Maryland ! My Maryland !
Come! 'tis the red dawn of the day,
Maryland! Come! with thy panoplied array,
Maryland ! With Ringgold's spirit for the fray, "With Watson's blood at Monterey, With fearless Lowe, and dashing May,
Maryland ! My Maryland!
Come! for thy shield is bright and strong,
Maryland ! Come ! for thy dalliance does thee wrong,
Maryland ! Come ! to thine own heroic throng, That stalks with Liberty along, And ring thy dauntless slogan-song,
Maryland ! My Maryland !
Dear Mother ! burst the tyrant's chain,
Maryland ! Virginia should not call in vain,
Maryland! She meets her sisters on the plain— " Sic semper," 'tis the proud refrain That baffles minions back amain,
Mar37land ! Arise, in majesty again,
Maryland ! My Maryland !
