Answer to Mother is the Battle Over?

Yes, my boy, the battle’s over?
Brave men, by thousands, have been slain;
Your fathers’s one, among the number;
We shall not see him here again;
He is well, but is not wounded,
Still he’s one among the slain;
Yet the battle brings us sadness
To know he’ll never come again.

Yes, mother, my noble father,
It breaks my heart to think he’s slain;
Though, on earth, we shall not see him,
In heaven, I hope, we’ll meet again;
His name will always he remembered
By those true Patriots to his cause,
The cause of God and our dear Country;
For, many loved ones now are gone.
