Lyrics: Peter La Farge.
Tune: Peter La Farge.


Is it dim burning low?
Is it dark burning slow?
Has it gone from your reach,
You war eagle of speech?

Father, oh, my father,
The torch you lit burns high,
And the trumpet beacons of freedom
Char the sky.

Is it far where you’re gone?
Is it still falling long?
Has it gone from your eyes,
Your war Indian cries?

Father, oh, my father,
The torch you lit burns high,
And the trumpet beacons of freedom
Char the sky.

Is it soft last the bed?
Is it hard lyin’ dead?
Has it gone from your side,
The freedom and pride?

Father, oh, my father,
The torch you lit burns high,
And the trumpet beacons of freedom
Char the sky.
