42 CLAMANDA - traditional

1991 Denson Revision
to the Cooper book version of this tune


Say, now ye lovely social band
Who walk the way to Canaan's land;
Ye who have fled from Sodom's plain,
Say, do you wish to turn again?
O have you ventured to the field
Well-armed with helmet, sword, and shield?
And shall the world, with dread alarms,
Compel you now to ground your arms?
