28. our Fatherland.

God save our Fatherland! from shore to shore;
     God save our Fatherland, one evermore.
No hand shall peril it,
     No strife shall sever it,
East, West, and North and South!
     One evermore!
Chorus--God save our Fatherland! true home of Freedom!
     God save our Fatherland, one evermore;
One in her hills and streams,
     One in her glorious dreams,
One in Love's noblest themes--
     One evermore!

Strong in the hearts of men, love is thy throne;
     Union and Liberty crown thee alone;
Nations have sighed for thee;
     Our sires have died for thee;
We'll all be true to thee--
     All are thine own.
Chorus--God save our Fatherland, &c.

Ride on, proud Ship of State, though tempests lower;
     Ride on in majesty, glorious in power;
Though fierce the blast may be,
     No wreck shall shatter thee--
Storms shall but bring to thee
     Sunshine once more.
Chorus--God save our Fatherland, &c.

--Evening Post, Feb. 23.
