TUNE -- "Life let us cherish."

For life let us cherish
The fame of honored Harrison;
And never perish
The laurels he won.

The spoils engrossing ravenous band
Have desolated all the land,
They glean their spoils from all its soils,
And honest labor foils.

So let us cherish
The fame of honored Harrison;
And never perish
The laurels he won.

Though clouds obscure the atmosphere;
And ruin threatens every where;
Yet down the storm, rides swift reform,
And honest hearts grow warm.

So let us cherish, &c.

New hopes inspire our hearts with glee --
Our offspring ever shall be free,
For dread alarm, like magic's charm,
Benumbs the spoiler's arm.

So let us cherish, &c.

To rescue, now comes Harrison;
His strength's a mighty garrison;
His growing weight, in every state,
Predicts Van Buren's fate.

So let us cherish, &c.
