Rallying Song

51

TUNE -- A Life on the Ocean Wave.

A CHEER for the brave Fremont!
A song for the true and tried!
His name is a household word,
And a sound of joy and pride.

52

Home from the western wilds,
From the path of toil and pain,
Where we traced his vent'rous steps,
We welcome him again.

We lift our flag on high,
And send the shout afar,
"His own brave hand shall keep
Undimmed each bannered star!"

Our Country! from the dust
Lift thy dishonored brow;
Look up, in joy, and trust,
And greet thy Champion now.

Pierced, mocked and grieved, too long
Thy sons have shared thy shame.
May our rallying cry for thee
Be the sin of a prouder fame!

Then a cheer for the brave Fremont!
A song for the true and tried!
His name is a household word,
And a sound of joy and pride!
