Be of faith young Soldier, though about you shadows dark descend!|
You are not alone -- if for freedomís sake you bravely risk your end!
And, forget not young Soldier, though a freedomís sun is sweetest,
there are worldly foes indeed, who curse to steal that light of day!
Take heart young Soldier, if freedom and justice be your treasures,
no man, no tyrant nor even God -- can weigh a sacrifice as cheap!
Be confident young Soldier, that all those of noblest acts and valor,
your Fathersí fallen friends -- live still -- the ageless rest of
And, when the longest day is done, if you -- by fortuneís hand remain,
preserve well in faith those who gave, so you could humbly live again!
