[80] Give them eternal rest,
Father, with thee,
On thy paternal breast,
God of the free!
Gather those ever thine
In thy fond arms divine,
Who for their country's laws,
God, and old Freedom's cause,
Battle and fall!
Give them eternal youth,
Life in immortal truth!
Flash wide o'er all
Their far-splendoring story,
To stream on sublime--
Their sunshine of glory,
To hallow all time!
