Crest to crest they bore our banner,
Side by side they fell asleep ; Hand in hand we scatter flowers,
Heart to heart we kneel and weep.
Chorus.—They have gone from us forever, etc.
When the May eternal dawneth
At the living God's behest, We will quaff divine Nepenthe,
We shall share the soldier's rest.
Chorus.—Where the weary feet are resting-, etc.
Where the shadows are uplifted, 'Neath the never-waning sun,
Shout we Gloria in Excelsis! We have lost, but ye have won!
Chorus.—Our hearts are yours forever,
Aye, for evermore ! Ye have won the crown immortal,
And the cross of death is o'er, When the oriflamme is burning
On the starlit Eden shore!
