Lyrics

1. Come, happy people, oh come let us tell The story of Washington and Lincoln.
History’s pages can never excel The story of Washington and Lincoln.
Down through the ages an anthem shall go, Bearing the honors we gladly bestow
Till every nation and language shall know The story of Washington and Lincoln.

Refrain
Who gave us independence On continent and sea, Who saved the glorious Union!
And set a people free! This is the story, Oh happy are we, The story of Washington and Lincoln.

2. Parents to children shall tell with delight The story of Washington and Lincoln.
Freeborn and freedmen to gather excite The story of Washington and Lincoln.
Earth’s weary bondmen shall listen with cheer, Tyrants shall tremble and traitors shall fear.
When, in its fullness of glory, they hear The story of Washington and Lincoln. Refrain
