Captain Morgan's March (Rhyfelgyrch...

Language: English

Dost not hear the martial hum?
Dost not hear the distant drum?
Yes, they come! our warriors come,
Glorying in their victory!

Honour'd be the soldier's grave!
Glory to the fallen brave!
Wave, triumphant banners, wave!
England has the victory!

Soon must many a bosom swell,
High with grief, while hearing tell
How a sire or husband fell,
On the field of victory.

Honour'd be, etc.

England's pleasure, England's pride,
Is through life to aid and guide
Those who lov'd the men who died
Glorying in her victory.

Honour'd be, etc.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
