LOYAL LEGION HYMN

ABRAHAM LINCOLN

February 12, 1809
February 12, 191 8




[Eare sailing, Father Abraham, amillion men and more
,To fight the battle of the Right upon a foreign shore;
Your spirit still will guide us as in that elder day
You showed the path to Freedom, and dying, blazed the way ;
'T is Freedom still we 're seeking, the Freedom of the World,
From shackles worse than Slavery : — Our flag is now unfurled
In consecrated battle against a foreign Ghoul
Whose madness would enthrall the mind and crucify the Soul.
The Flag you loved and died for will surely lead the van
Of heroes pledged to Freedom and Brotherhood of Man.
Look down upon your people, look down upon your land,
Once more become our leader, stretch out your helping hand:
We know the God who took you and keeps you near His heart
Will spare you from His Kingdom to take your people's part.
To help them win the battle that leads to lasting peace,
That binds up wounds of mind and heart and bids war's terrors

cease,
That purifies the Earth for God and God's anointed Son : —
Then, Abraham, return to God, your work once more is done.
