Temperance Jubilee

 Next Poem          

Cheerily, cheerily sound the joyful strain;
Happily, happily now we meet again,
Here we' stand,
On this cheerful temperance day,
Gracious God to thee we pray,
Let our cause, so righteous, sway
Every heart in the land.


Cheerily, cheerily sound the joyful strain;
Happily, happily, now we meet again;
We are here,
We who love the temperance cause,
We who wish for righteous laws,
We cold water girls and boys,
We are here--we are here.


Cheerily, cheerily sound the joyful strain;
Happily, happily, now we meet again;
Here we raise
Songs of praise to God, who sends
Blessings on our temperance friends.
On Him all our hope depends,
For the triumph of this cause.
