Stand! the ground’s your own my braves!
Will ye give it up to slaves!
Will ye look for greener graves,
What’s the mercy despots feel!
Hear it in that battle peal,
Read it in yon bristling steel
Fear ye foes who kill for hire,
Will ye to your homes retire!
Look behind you! they’re a fire,
Who have done it! from the vale,
On they come, and will ye quail?
Leaden rain and iron hail
In the God of battles trust!
Die we may, and we must—
But oh! where can dust to dust,
As where heaven its dew shall shed,
On the martyr’d patriot’s bed,
And the rocks shall raise their head,
