H.DE. MARSAN. DEALER IN SONGS TOY BOOKS &C. No. 54 CHATHAM. N. Y.
The army is gathering from near and from far;
The trumpet is sounding the call for the war;
Mc Clellan’s our leader, he’s gallant and strong,
We’ll gird on our armor, and be marching along.
The foe is before us, in battle array;
But let us not waver, or turn from the way;
The Lord is our strength, and the Union’s our song;
With courage and faith, we are marching along.
We sigh for our country, we mourn for our dead:
For them, now, our last drop of blood we will shed;
Our cause is the right one: our foe’s in the wrong;
Then, gladly we’ll sing as we’re marching along!
Our wives and our children we leave in your care;
We know you will help them their sorrows to bear;
’Tis hard thus to part, but we hope ’twon’t be long;
We’ll keep up our hearts as we’re marching along.
The Flag of our Country is floating on high,
We’ll stand by that Flag, till we conquer or die!
McClellan’s our leader, he’s gallant and strong;
We’ll gird on our armor, and be marching along!
