Give us a song to cheer Our wea - ry hearts, a

Think - ing of days gone by, Of the loved ones at home that

Man - y are dead and gone Of the brave and true who've

Man - y are ly - ing near: Some are dead, and


song of home, And friends we love so dear,

gave us the hand. And the tear that said "good -bye!"

left their homes, Oth - ers been wound-ed long.

Some are dying, Man-y the fall - ing tear.


Chorus.

Man - y are the hearts that are wea - ry to - night,


Wish- ing for the war to cease; Man - y are the hearts

look - ing for the right, To see the dawn of peace.
