Recognition of the Southern Confederacy.

Song. Recognition of the Southern Confederacy.

Recognize us, recognize us,
From the South the noble cry,
Strikes the ears of Lincoln’s cabinet,
Recognize us now, or die.

We have borne your jeering insults,
Heaped upon our noble race,
Recognize us now, this instant,
E’er we meet you face to face.

If you’l come to us as brothers,
Asking pardon for the past,
We like brothers will receive you,
And will love you to the last.

We’ll forgive your past injustice,
We’ll forgive your John Brown raid,
If we find sincere repentance,
In your hearts that God has made.

Recognize our honest labours,
From our land to clear the dross,
To stifle Greely, choke off Beecher,
Degenerate preacher of the cross.

Recognize us, recognize us,
From the South the noble cry,
Strikes the ears of Abram Lincoln,
Recognize us now or die.
