God bless each meaty form.
Gone to defend his home;
God bless our boys!
God bless each steady bead,
In this bright Southern land;
God bless each patriot band
Of our brave boys!

God bless each youthful heart;
May they from sin depart;
God bless one boys!
Preserve their names from barm,
Strengthen each trembling arm,
Keep them from war's alarm;
God bless our boys!

God keep the feelings right,
Of those who've gone to fight
For their loved homes!
Preserve them by thy power,
Bless them to death's dark hour,
Save them mid cannon's roar,
When the foe come!

Make them to trust in them
God of our liability.
Oh, bless our boys!
Mother's and sister's prayers,
Mingled with fathers' cares,
All, all of these are theirs,
God bless one boys!
