Seite 12 - Keep a-goin' ! When it looks like all is up, Keep a-goin'! Drain the sweetness from the cup, Keep a-goin' ! See the wild birds on the wing ! Hear the bells that sweetly ring! When you feel like sighin', — sing! Keep a-goin'!
Seite 13 - They now to fight are gone, Armor on armor shone, Drum now to drum did groan, To hear was wonder, That with the cries they make The very earth did shake, Trumpet to trumpet spake, Thunder to thunder.
