Hark! the boys are coming!
Don't you hear them tramp!
Here they come, with Banners stained and torn;
See their cheerful faces,
As they leave the camp—
Marching on their happy journey home,
Chorus: Coming home, coming home,
Don't you hear the drum!
Yes, they're coming home, hurrah! hurrah!
The cruel war is over,
The noble work is done;
They're coming they are coming from the war.
Hearts that seemed as breaking,
Throb with joy to-day;
Eyes are bright, that long were dimmed with tears:
Hopes that seemed as vanished,
Now are light and gay:
Doubting ones have banished all their fears.
Boys, don't keep us waiting,
Quickly march along!
Loving ones are watching at the door,
Listening for foot-steps,
Since the early morn:
Come, and live in peace for evermore!
Now the war is over,
May we soon forget
Troubles that have passed, and sorrows gone.?
Hoping that the star
Of Peace will never set,
Praying for the Nation NEWLY BORN!
