A Call For Help For Garibaldi

Canadian freemen, one and all,
Respond to Garibaldi's call,
And help him now to speed the fall
Of fair Italia's foes.
Our God this year abundance sends,
Oh, spend it not for selfish ends,
But give to him who RIGHT defends,
And strives to heal her woes.

See him as he unselfish stands,
Surrounded by his patriot bands--
The admiration of all lands--
Wave Freedom's banner high.
He moves--acclaiming thousands wait
To open wide each city gate.
And trust to him their future fate--
Assured redemption's nigh.

Whole-souled and brave as man can be,
He fights alone for Liberty;
Nor will he rest till Italy
Shake off her tyrants' chains.
This done he seeks not high estate;
Success does not his soul elate;
In lowliness he can be great,
For meanness he disdains.

Can we to such a one deny
Assistance? when to do or die
He passes outward splendors by
In singleness of heart?
Forbid it, ye of British blood!
Forbid it all who seek for good.
Rise! show that you have understood
An honest freeman's part!

Let not this noble Patriot's fate
Be such as was Kossuth's the Great.
May their magnific deeds create
A glow of sympathy
Which shall increase till every chain
Enslaving man be snapped in twain,
And universal Freedom reign
In glorious majesty.


1860

His country, fondly cherished,But erst so great and fair, the humbled victimOf black traitors' arts, and on the vergeOf fearful ruin's widely yawning gulf.While recollections of domestic bliss,Such as but few enjoy, might well indeedMake him quite loth to leave his much loved home.With steady eye he views the concourse vast,Big thoughts fast welling from his inmost soulToo big
