And the Last Cock Shall Crow
Rise O Sons of Liberty!
First children of the Church!
Rise O Gallic Cock
As on the first dawn,
August Rock Blest Cephas of eternal memory
Learned the penalty of treason’s misery!
The Phoenix and the Cock
Patriotism’s a many-splendoured bird
Her feathers blaze, O myriad hues
Some pay with capital, some with words
Some give their own life’s blood
Their own life’s breath they count as smoke,
Tis but a fleeting shadow in the vale
No passion’s penalty dare they refuse!
