Weep Not, Comrades, For Me


Published by Firth, Pond & Co., 547 Broadway, N.Y.

Weep not, Comrades, for me.

Weep not, oh, weep not! Comrades for me,
I die for our Country’s lov’d Liberty;
Weep not! brave comrades, hear Freedom’s call!
Rise! Meet her foemen, Vanquish or fall!

Weep not, oh, weep not! valiant and true,
Like your forfathers heroes be you;
Clouds may oft darken Columbia’s day:
Shadow is needed light to display!

Weep not. oh, weep not! tho’ I depart:
Death has no terror for patriot heart;
To save our Country, still would I live,
Yet life for her sake freely I give!
