WE ARE COMING FATHER ABRA'AM. L.O. Emerson

1. We are coming, Fa-ther Abra'am, three hundred thousand more, From Mississippi's winding stream and from New England's shore; We leave our plows and workshops our wives and children dear, With hearts too full for ut-terance, with but a si-lent tear; We dare not look be-hind us, but steadfastly be-fore_ We are coming, Father Abra-am _ three hundred thousand more!
