     Tremble, tyrants! at the flashing
Of our arms, when onward dashing,
     You shall hear their fetters crashing,
Broke by Northern Volunteers!
     And your slaves give back the cheers
Of the Northern Volunteers!

God of Freedom! give Thy might
     To the spirits of Thy sons!
To their bayonets in fight!
     To the death within their guns!
Make their deeds in battle gory,
     Burn and brightly shine in glory,
When the world shall read the story
     Of the Northern Volunteers!
And echo back the cheers
     Of the Northern Volunteers!

Headquarters British Volunteers, New York, May 18, 1861.
