NEW NATIONAL SONG,

COMPOSED AND SUNG BY

MR. DIXON,

AT WASHINGTON PARADE GROUND, BEFORE 120,000 PERSONI

ON THE 25TH NOVEMBER, 1830.

Hurrah for France ! 'tis joy to see,

Far in the mighty dawn,
The genius of old Liberty

With all her armour on.
The glory of her spear has cast.

The tyrants' might away :
Sound loud your trumpets to the blast-

Hurrah for France, Hurrah !

Hurrah for France ! for she has woke

From out her dream at length;
The wine cup and the lute are broke,

All godlike in her strength.
Frect she stands, while round her brow

Bright hopes of Freedom play,
Exulting she is harnessed now-

Hurrah for France, Hurrah !
