The Trumpet of Freedom.
WORDS FROM A. S. STANDARD.
1. Hark! hark! to the trumpet of freedom,
Her rallying signal she blows,
Come gather around her broad banner,
And battle 'gainst liberty's foes.
Our forefathers plighted their honor,
Their lives and their property too,
To maintain, in defiance of Britain,
Their principles righteous and true.
2. Hurra for the old fashioned doctrine,
That men are created all free;
We ever will boldly maintain it,
Nor care who the tyrant may be.
We're foes unto wrong and oppression,
No matter which side of the sea;
And ever intend to oppose them,
Till all of God's image are free.
