Contents
  • [no. 1]. All hail the power of abstinence -- And are you sure the news is true -- Another song we'll sing to you -- A life full of temperance -- All hail! This night the cause we'll sing -- A glorious day is breaking -- Come, join the Washingtonians -- Come now, my old companions -- Come, all ye who're fond of singing -- Cold water is king, cold water is lord -- Come, ye drunkards, sad and weary -- Dismission hymns -- From the mountain top and valley -- Flow gently, thou tear-drop -- Go, go, thou that enslavest me -- How happy are they -- I'm free! I'm free! I've burst the bands -- I see them on their temp'rance way -- Joyful the season, and blest was the hour -- My country! 'Tis of thee -- March to the battle field -- O, I was once the landlord's pet -- Once more, our temperance banner out -- O, I am a temperance man --
  • [no. 1, cont.]. Oh, what has made the grog men sigh -- O'er Mexic's bounding billow -- O, pity me, lady, I'm hungry and cold -- Refuse not, Lord, thy strength to lend -- Sots, whose health and wealth have fled -- Should auld affection be forgot -- Touch not the cup -- Together now we'll sweetly live -- The drink that's in the drunkard's bowl -- 'Tis but a drop, the father said -- The temperance ball's in motion -- The teetotallers are coming -- The temperance cause is going on -- The Washington boys are playing the dickens -- The landlord so polite, when he sees you coming in -- We come, we come, that have been held -- When bright rosy morning -- When duty calls, we're wide awake -- We've fought the battle very long -- When temperance in our midst doth come -- We come with joy and gladness -- Why does the teetotaller follow my path -- Watchman, tell us of the night -- Where are the friends that to me were so dear -- We have entered the field, and are ready to fight -- You will see the Washingtonians
  • [no. 2]. All hail the cause -- Arise, ye sons of temperance -- A beacon has been lighted -- A serpent lurks within the bowl -- Bring forth your bands -- Behold the Washingtonians -- Brothers, I the pledge have taken -- Before all causes east or west -- Come, sisters, join in songs of praise -- Come, soldiers of the pledge -- Come friends, and brethren, all unite -- Drunkards once were given up -- Did you ever hear of the army -- Daughter of nations -- From Plymouth Rock of story -- Friends of termperance -- From hill and dale and fertile plain -- Friends of freedom -- From the bright crystal fountain -- God of the spreading earth -- God of our fathers -- Hold on, ye noble band -- Hark! Hark! The Washingtonian shout -- I'm glad I ever saw the day -- I have wandered from east to west -- I'll sing you a wondrous song -- I will not drink alway -- I heard a bitter sigh --
  • [no. 2, cont.]. I've left the cup -- King Alcohol is going -- Life on high the temp'rance banner -- O, no, we cannot touch the bowl -- O, water, pure water, how brightly it flows -- O'er the dark abodes of sorrow -- Once I was happy and free as the air -- See yon feeble infant kneeling -- Shout, shout, your voices raise -- See the temp'rance army coming -- Sparkling and bright -- Swell, swell the strain -- Stay, mortal, stay, nor heedless thus -- other, stay! Whither going so fast -- 'Tis good, dear friends, to sign the pledge -- There's wicked rogues in every place -- The temp'rance ball is rolling along -- The dawn is on the mountain top -- Times won't be good, 'tis plain to see -- The temp'rance ship is now afloat -- Through all our wide rambles -- The cause we all are pleading -- There is joy in a thousand hearts -- What sound do we hear -- We greet with joy this happy day -- What means all this great commotion -- When all who sell for sordid gain -- Welcome, brothers, welcome here
