Newly arranged by W.F. Sherwin

LYRICS
Abraham, Our Abraham!
From Californias sea-girt shores-- Abraham, our Abraham.
To where the great Atlantic roars--Abraham, our Abraham,
The people cry with one accord,
Death! death to all the rebel horde!
Let Freedom conquer by the sword,
Abraham our Abraham.

Chorus:
The people cry with one accord,
Death! death to all the rebel horde!
Let Freedom conquer by the sword!
Abraham our Abraham.

The nation long has heard the sound, Abraham, our Abraham.
Our brothers' blood calls from the ground--Abraham, our Abraham,
"Let not our blood be shed in vain
Advancing to the fight again
Save! save our land from Slavery's chain"
Abraham our Abraham.

With heart inspired to lead them on Abraham, our Abraham.
Our Fathers fought with Washington. Abraham, our Abraham,
To free our land from tyranny;
Their watchword was "all men are free"
He led them on to Liberty
Abraham our Abraham.

To you we look in this dread hour, Abraham, our Abraham.
Entrusted with a Nation's power Abraham, our Abraham.
To end the work so well begun
We'll stand by you till it is done,
Union and Peace by Victory won,
Abraham, our Abraham.
