“On Thy Guard!” Sheet Music (pdf).
“On Thy Guard!” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).

Lyrics: Bouck White.
Tune: Bouck White.

Comrade, be on thy guard:
A poisoned arrow flies!
The hosts of mammon tempt thee hard,
To lure thee with a prize.
The Martyrs, unto blood,
Resisted in their day;
And do thou likewise brest the flood;
Be foremost in the fray.

Then, watch and work and fight;
The battle ne’er give o’er;
Around thee camp the hosts of Night;
O, weaken nevermore.
As soldiers firm and strong,
We dangers must endure.
We fight against entrenched wrong;
But vict’ry cometh sure.

Vict’ry cometh sure!
