The Declaration

H. DE MARSAN, Publisher, 58 Chatham Street, New-York.

The Declaration.

We come, we come, a little band,
As children of the nation!
We’re joined in heart, we’re joined in hand,
To keep the Declaration!

We come, we come, with joyful eyes;
We fear no usurpation:
Our Fathers fought to win the prize,
And keep the Declaration!

We come, we come.. ’tis Freedom’s cause
Excites our admiration!
Columbia’s Sons, maintain her laws,
And keep the Declaration!

We come, we come, with garlands bright,
To crown with approbation
Our Land which marches in her might,
To keep the Declaration!

We come, we come.. to God be praise
For our exalted station!
We thank Him for such happy days,
And keep the Declaration!

We come, we come.. we soon must die,
And so must all our Nation:
We’ll not forget the prize on high,
Yet keep the Declaration!
