Hear the call for your help

Representative Text

1 Hear the call for your help in the noble fight
Being waged ‘gainst the wrong by the ranks of right;
Now enroll ‘neath the banner so fair and bright,
Be true to the temp’rance cause.

Refrain:
Be true to the temp’rance cause,
Be true to the temp’rance cause,
Till the vict’ry shall come in the battle with rum,
Be true to the temp’rance cause.

2 To the helpless and weak be a trusty friend,
Hear their piteous plea and their rights defend;
To o’ercome their strong foe your assistance lend,
Be true to the temp’rance cause. [Refrain]

3 ‘Gainst the power of rum take a fearless stand
And with long faithful workers join heart and hand,
As they seek from its fetters to free our land,
Be true to the temp’rance cause. [Refrain]

4 Till the warfare is done, ever toil and pray;
Tho’ the end of the conflict seem far away,
There is triumph awaiting us some glad day,
Be true to the temp’rance cause. [Refrain]
