Lyrics: Percy Thacker(1)(2)

Year: 1865(1)
Genre:
Country: USA


They come, they come, the freemen host,
Let all the land rejoice:
I see their banner's stripes and stars,
I hear the Nor'land's voice.
'Tis God who speeds the conquerer,
The God of Liberty;
then let us shout, All hail the voice;
the Nor'land's voice, Be Free!

(CHORUS:)
We're freeman now,
we're freeman now,
and we'll be free alway;
We're freement now,
we're freemen now,
Hurra, Hurra, Hurra!

And let us swear by all the blood,
That cries from out the ground,
That we will keep inviolate
the freedom we have found.
No more as slaves we'll till the soil,
no more as slaves we'll bow;
As freemen only will we toil,
for we are freemen now!

(CHORUS)
