 God anoint us in this moment
Of memorial for the dead—
For the once contending armies
Now united overhead—
For the Blue and Gray together
That so bravely fought and fell,
When the North and South divided—
Faced the flashing flame of hell.
They are looking from the Heavens
On this hallowed scene to-day,
And the pipes of peace are playing
To their spirits' gentle sway.
While we rear the solid column,
Rear it high that men may see
How the valiant honor valor—
How the brave remember Lee.
