The work of death -- Sadly silent near the dead -- They had heard the news of the battle -- To think that you died alone -- Vigil strange -- They bear him gently home -- Not e'en the house of God was spared -- Home, home again! -- God of the true-hearted -- But God he keeps the middle way -- To the plain where the blessed city lies -- In glory sleep! -- Lincoln is dead! -- Purchased with our Jackson's blood -- Thy pale and perished flowers -- Rightful order into ruin hurled -- The glowing wonders of secession -- Since mercy fell by tyranny -- Gaunt treason -- On none dependent, sovereign, free -- This broad domain that freedom craves -- The thirsty lash, with sharp, steel-pointed thong -- The festal march of iron -- Most glorious southern land -- Magical mesh, to entangle a world -- The book of books we confidently quote -- All Scripture is useful in its place -- Your father, boy, was eager -- She gave a shriek and cried aloud -- Their earthly paths no more shall sever
