[5] O Fair and Faithful! that, sun by sun,
     Slept on the field, or lost or won--
Children dear of the Holy One!
     Rest in your wintry sod.
Rest, your noble Devoir is done--
     Done — and forever!--ours, to-day,
The dreary drift and the frozen clay
     By trampling armies trod--
The smoky shroud of the War-Simoon,
     The maddened Crime at bay with her Doom,
And fighting it, clod by clod.
     O Calm and Glory!--beyond the gloom,
Above the bayonets bend and bloom
     The lilies and palms of God.
