One starry tear-drop hangs and tum
Though Heaven alone records the tear
And fame shall never know her
Her heart has shed a drop as dear
As e'er bedewed the field of glory!
The wife who girds her husband's
'Mid little ones who weep or won
And bravely speaks the cheering
E'en though her heart be rent
Doomed mighty in her dreams to hear
The bolts of death around him rat
Hath shed as sacred blood as e'er
Was poured upon the field of bat
\he mother who conceals her grief
While to her breast her son she
Then breathes a few brave words and
Kissing the patriot brow she bles
With no one but her secret God
To know the pain that weighs upon
Sheds holy blood as e'er the sod
