LINCOLN. IN MEMORIUM. Words by W.P. Fox. Music by F. Woolcott.

Tempo di Marche Funebre.

1. Rest chieftain rest, now Columbia is free, Rest for thy labors are o'er; Rest in the silence freemen hath made thee, Rest on thy own native shore.

2. Rest noble chieftain, our nation is free, Rest on Columbia's proud shore. Rest while freemen will ever deplore thee Rest with the brave now no more.

Ent. acc. to act of Congress AD 1865 by J. Church jr. in the clks. office of the Southn. Dist. Ct. of O.


4

Rest as thy glory floats over the sea, Rest for thy work is well done; Rest where arch-angels wait to receive thee, Rest on the soil that thou hast won.

Rest chieftain rest, soon heaven will wake thee, Rest where our banner shall wave Rest where in grace thy shadow reveals thee, Rest in the land of the brave.

CHORUS.

Breathe a sad requiem ye millions now free Breathe a sad requiem ye millions now free,


5

Saviour of Freedom is waiting for thee. Breathe a sad requiem ye Saviour of Freedom is waiting for thee. Breathe a sad requiem ye millions now free, Saviour of Freedom is waiting for thee. millions now free, Saviour of Freedom is waiting for thee.
