 Clang the bells in all your spires;
On the gray hills of your sires
Fling to heaven your signal-fires.

Brand the craven on his brow!

For a free and fearless race,
None for traitors false and base.

Strike together while ye can,
Like the arm of one strong man.
Like that angel's voice sublime,
Heard above a world of crime,
Crying of the end of time;
With one heart and with one mouth,
Let the North unto the South
Speak the word befitting both:
