We loved it so! when our hopes were brightest, And their valor made our hearts the lightest, And our Cause the purest and the whitest.

When we count the rosary of our years
For the Heroes who died—ah! saddest tears !
For the Knights in gray-oh! glorious cheers.

Of our dead, we'll sing in a minor song
And the sobbing low notes of woe prolong,
And we'll lay in a grave all thought of wrong.

Their honor untarnished-bright as the day,
Patriots so grand! we'll love them alway,
Oh! gallant Heroes of the C. S. A.
