Victory at Last

Victory at Last!

For many years we’ve waited
To hail the day of peace,
When our land shall be united,
And war and strife shall cease;
And now that day approaches
The drums are beating fast,
And all the boys are coming home,
There’s victory at last.

The heroes who have gained it,
And lived to see that day,
We will meet with flying banners,
And honors on the way;
And all their sad privations
Shall to the wind be cast,
For all the boys are coming home,
There’s victory at last.

O happy wives and children,
Light up your hearts and homes,
For see, with martial music
“The conquering hero comes,”
With flags and streamers flying,
While drums are beating fast,
For all the boys are coming home,
Victory at last.
