GOD SAVE THE SOUTH

By George H. Miles, of Baltimore[1]

 

 

God save the South!

God save the South!

Her altars and firesides –

God save the South!

Now that the war is night –

Now that we arm to die –

Chanting our battle-cry,

Freedom or death!

 

God be our shield!

At home or a-field,

Stretch Thine arm over us,

Strengthen and save!

What though they’re five to one

Forward each sire and son,

Strike till the war is done,

Strike to the grave.
