Hail the March of Prohibition.
M. REBECCA DARR.
JAS. L. ORR.
1. Hail to the crystal fountain flowing
Pure, bright and clear;
Touch not the ruby wine-cup glowing,
Shun it with manly fear.
Away the dazzling soul of madness,
Of grief and pain!
We hail the sparkling fount of gladness,
It can not leave a stain.
Hail the march of Prohibition!
May its banner float,
Uphold by temp'rance legislation,
Honored by voice and vote.
2. Let not Columbia's sons and daughters
The wine extol;
But let us quaff the sparkling waters,
Wine to the hero's soul.
We need on other inspiration
Than truth and right;
Cool heads and hands must guard the nation,
Her honor is her might.
3. No luring blush shall chain the hours
That Freedom loves;
No lurking fiend shall steal the powers
Virtue so well approves.
No sting the sparkling water hideth,
No deadly care;
No misery or woe betideth,
For sparkling truth is there.
