Lyrics: T. Phillips Thompson.
Tune: “Auld Lang Syne.”


Should old reformers be forgot
Whose names resplendent shine,
Who stood for right and faltered not
In the days of auld lang syne.

In auld lang syne, my dear,
In auld lang syne,
They lit the spark amid the dark,
In the days of auld lang syne.

Brave pioneers in freedom’s cause,
With impulses divine,
Withstood the power of tyrants’ laws
In the days of auld lang syne.

In auld lang syne, my dear,
In auld lang syne,
They lit the spark amid the dark,
In the days of auld lang syne.

They lit the flame of reason’s lamp
And bid its radiance shine,
No despot’s wrath the zeal could damp
Of the men of auld lang syne.

In auld lang syne, my dear,
In auld lang syne,
They lit the spark amid the dark,
In the days of auld lang syne.

In dungeon deep, on gallows tree,
In battle’s foremost line,
They gave their lives for liberty
In the days of auld lang syne.

In auld lang syne, my dear,
In auld lang syne,
They lit the spark amid the dark,
In the days of auld lang syne.

Then let the dust where heroes sleep
Be freedom’s holiest shrine,
And green the memories will keep
Of the men of auld lang syne.

In auld lang syne, my dear,
In auld lang syne,
They lit the spark amid the dark,
In the days of auld lang syne.
