1. From vale to hill, from hill to vale,
Hear ye the bugle blast,
What shouts are borne on every gale
For Lincoln of the West.

Chorus -- For Lincoln of the West, my boys,
For Lincoln of the West,
The Champion of Freedom's cause
Is Lincoln of the West.

2. No truer heart than his can guide
The Ship of State to rest --
A nation's heart now turns with pride
To Lincoln of the West.
Cho. -- For Lincoln of the West, &c.

3. The reign of misrule long we've borne --
By burthens sore oppressed,
And for relief the people turn
To Lincoln of the West.
Cho. -- For Lincoln of the West, &c.

4. Let every heart and hand now join
To bring the day thrice blessed,
The nation shall her trust consign
To Lincoln of the West.
Cho. -- For Lincoln of the West, &c.
