Welcome! Brother! To our band!|
Welcome! Brother! Heart and hand!
True, together we will stand
Or together fall.
2. By brave Schomberg's martyr-fame!
3. King James took post on high Donore,
4. But William led his forces on.|
Was ever present in the van,
Strictly exhorting every man
To push for victory.
5. A cannon-ball grazed William's arm,
6. Full fifteen hundred men were lost,
7. Duke Schomberg's death o'er balanced all,|
Who met his fate by a musket ball
King William mourn'd this hero's fall,
Who died' midst victory.
