Tune: TEMPERANCE SONG
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

Chorus:
Farewell, forever,
To the destroying cup,
Bearing deadly poison,
O, we give it up!

1 A sun has risen on the world,
A glorious banner is unfurl'd,
The sun of temperance sheds its ray,
its banner leads the way;

Chorus:
Farewell, forever,
To the destroying cup,
Bearing deadly poison,
O, we give it up!

2 In darkness long, in deep despair,
The victims to the wine-cup were,
But now they know the road to health,
to happiness and wealth; [Chorus]

3 They've tried the boasted charms of wine,
And felt their health and hopes decline,
They've tried the pure cold water too,
and now they live anew! [Chorus]
