The Glory lyrics

The Glory

Captain Emmett Lochran
The bugle calls us to the line
From the mists of the long ago
See how the battle sabres shine
And the shadows the flags all throw
For the glory
For a land forever free
For the last best hope of mankind
For the better part of me
For the glory
For the words we hold so dear
Let us give the last full measure
Gathered here
For the glory

Frederick Douglass
Our time to stand has come at last
Let the drums start the long long roll

Black Soldier
The chains are gone, the die is cast
To His grace I commend my soul

Captain Emmett Lochran
For the glory
For the country we could be
For the freedom we must cherish
If we die, let us die free

All
For the glory
For the truth we hold so dear
Let us give the last full measure
Gathered here
Captain Billy Pierce
For the glory

Frederick Douglass
The surrender of the Confederacy, the president's second inaugaration, and his funeral have all happened in little more than a month.
Six hundred and twenty thousand Americans have lost their lives.
On the issue of slavery, Mr. Lincoln seemed slow, cold and indifferent.
But, given the sentiments of the country, he was swift, radical and determined.
Taking him all in all, I know now that infinite wisdom has seldom sent any man into the world better fitted for his mission than Abraham Lincoln.
I was at his inaugaration, and I remember his words.
Fondly do we hope -- fervently do we pray -- that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away.

Voice of Abraham Lincoln
With malice toward none
With charity for all
With firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right
Let us strive on to finish the work we are in
To bind up the nation's wounds

All
For the glory
For the men of blue and gray
Make the country that they died for
Worth the price they had to pay
For the glory
Let the voice of freedom grow
'Til we finish what they started, long ago

For the glory
For the men of blue and gray
Make the country that they died for
Worth the price they had to pay
For the glory
Let the voice of freedom grow
'Til we finish what they started, long ago
For the Glory
